Back Stripping

Andre Cloutier

Firestarter. Wicked Firestarter.
Speaking on behalf of someone who might be thrilled to get your canoe 90 years from now, please dont paint it. If you must, dont choose red. 3 hours and $15 later we`re on our way to the lawn at Paul Smiths to sit among the Rushtons.:cool:

Thanks Peter, its going to be nice. Lots of ribs to go yet, should be a couple of weeks. Thankfully there's little to no woodwork, just minor stuff.
Interior Red

Why do people paint the inside of all-wood canoes? Forty hours of scraping later and ready for the clear waters of the Sierra Nevada.
