    Been a while since i've posted a project on here, and thought i would seek some advice. I'm counting on some direction in particular from Dave Wermuth and anyone else that's brought one back from dead. Found this and couldnt leave it in the bush, question is - should i focus on a 100 point restoration or would it be okay to take some liberties with its reconstruction? Discuss.....

    It's YOUR canoe... if you'd like some lovely decks of figured wood, go for it even if the boat didn't originally have such a thing.

    If you'll commit to make the trip, I'll rake it all up and put it in a box:p
    And would you cut down the trees or lift it over?
