I've looked for information on canvasing a rowboat. None found so I'll just ask....has anyone put new canvas on a rowboat? I have a Shell Lake 13ft rowboat. Tag says it will accommodate up to a 5 hp motor. Construction is identical to a canoe except for the stern. It has a transom one and a quarter inch thick. The boat has no rot and I just took off the original canvas. The original canvas appears thicker than canoe canvas and was only lapped one inch onto the transom. On top of that was a piece of thin sheet aluminum cut to shape. This U shaped piece is 2.5 inch wide and nailed to the transom every 3/4inch top and bottom edges. Under the aluminum sheet was bedding compound covering the joint where the canvas stops.. You can visualize a very wide U and then the plain painted green wood transom inside the U. I'd like to hear from anyone who has done one of these. I've done a dozen canoe but this is the only rowboat I have and ever will have. I have to get it right the first time. I've never had a Shell Lake canoe but this rowboat is very well made. Wonderful planking and canvas job. Gunwales suffered over the years and the oarlocks needed reinforcement. It's a simple and very nicely made boat that over the years had a few small outboards. It's well worth my time. Even thought of having one of the pros canvas it. Anyone got advice?
