I fell in love with this closed gunwale CR, very finely shaped thwarts and finer seats. Has original rail caps(hurray) and inwales(hurray again) but looks to need outer caps, can't have everything right? The tips are rotted as usual but the funny thing is they were covered in resin impregnented porch screen! That's a new one on me! Bought it of the original family. The gent I bought it from used it and before that his uncle had it just before WW II. His uncle was a tail gunner in a bomber and was shot down killing everyone onboard. Before that, his grandfather was the original owner. Neat canoe, neat history as many others do.
