Hi everyone. My name is Ray, and today a canoe found my father and me. I received a text with a picture of the canoe and he just said, "it's free, do you want it?" It was a client of my father that owned the boat. His wife wanted to turn it into a planter. So I hooked up my empty canoe trailer and drove over to take a look, and we brought it home. I know nothing about wooden canoes other than I was thinking about building a CLC strip canoe this winter. This canoe doesn't appear to be that old, so it might be a nice learning experience. I'd like to cover it with canvas unless someone here talks me out of it! Other than the fact it's a Great Canadian, I can't find much info on this model. It's a bit shy of 15' and overall similar to my old Grumman Sport Boat so it looks like it might be fun to make into a fishing/sailing canoe.
