Ok.... I've read any past threads I could find on the topic and any article I could find in my books. I'm still not sure what to use on the exterior of a canoe. I've read the discussions on boiled linseed oil. I'm still on the fence about that one but I think the fact that it blackens with age will keep me from using it. I'd like to use it on the inside of the canoe after stripping it and before varnishing as well. I'd like to know what you use to treat the exterior of your canoes and maybe why you choose to do so. Also, if it's a particular name brand product, what the equivalent might be here in Canada. Thanks!
