I'm looking into buying an old wood/canvas canoe that had the canvas replaced by the WEST technique epoxy. I am not familiar with the WEST system. Is it possible to remove it safely without damaging too much of the existing wood? I'd like to recanvas it but I don't want to buy it if I can't. I have a canvas canoe that was fiberglassed in the 70s and we were able to remove the fiberglass quite easily. I don't have much time to think about it so any speedy replies would be very much appreciated. If you need more information, I can try to get some answers for you. I appreciate any and all replies. Thanks!!!
