Finishing off canvas on square stern boat


Curious about Wooden Canoes
I have a Shell Lake Drake Mallard duck boat. The boat came to me re-covered with fiberglass. I have removed the fiberglass and will be putting on new canvas. I have canvassed several canoes, so I am familiar with the procedure, however this boat has a square stern as well as a canvas covered deck. The picture of the transom shows the nail holes from the original canvas job. Is anyone familiar with how the canvas was finished off on the transom? It appears that the deck canvas was overlapped onto the hull canvas, but that would still leave a bare edge of canvas above the overlap.
