Me being the woodworker of my group of friends. One of them has brought me a 25 year old strip canoe that his father and uncle built and is in need of a full restoration. So far all the fiberglass has let go and came off in one piece and the glue on the bottom strips is non existant. The up side the stem and stern are solid as well as the sides and gunwhales. So I will be looking for advice on most everything . I will keep a photo journal and post as we go.
