Canoe project

Post by libertinexjrs » Wed Jul 04, 2018 6:43 pm

Hello I have managed to get my hands on this nearly completed project.
I'm thinking new gunwalls bracing inside a sand back and repaint new thwarts and a fiberglass inside and out along with some touch ups on either end.

Does anyone have any tips on what to use for inside bracing and gunwalls.

Also does anyone know of what plans it was made from

Hi

Suggest posting the same question Song of the Paddle, as there is a Self-Build canoe section there that is quite popular, frequented by regular builders, and normally very helpful: http://www.songofthepaddle.co.uk/forum/ ... ild-Canoes

The current gunwhales appear to be separate short strips, it would be better to have continuous I think, but I'm no expert.
