Hello, I recently acquired an old canvas canoe and I'm in the process of trying to identifying it. Considering the age of the boat, I will not attempt to sand the interior over lead paint concerns. My best option so far is to get it dipped or try chemical stripping myself. I am open to newer, advanced materials as long as you can't tell. I have all pieces that are missing from the bow. The owner joined the Navy after the attack on Pearl Harbor and his brother attempted to restore the boat but decided it was too much work. Their doesn't appear to be any broken ribs. I would most likely replace the inwales/outwales and decks and use clear expoxy where needed as the ribs near each bow show signs of wear and rot. This is what I know: Built: 1922 Length:15'3" Beam: 34 1/2" Inwales look like white oak Outwales look like Ash Decks are Oak It has been sitting like this for 70 years (indoors).
