Welcome to the WCHA.
In addition to asking questions here (and don't be bashful about asking), there are three good sources of information about canoe restoration that you would do well to get, or at least look at, before making any decision about how to repair or restore your canoe:
The Wood and Canvas Canoe: A Complete Guide to its History, Construction, Restoration, and Maintenance by Rollin Thurlow and Jerry Stelmok
Building the Maine Guide Canoe by Jerry Stelmok
This Old Canoe: How To Restore Your Wood-Canvas Canoe, by Mike Elliott
The first is often called the "bible" of canoe repair, restoration, and maintenance; the second is an excellent study of the wooden/canvas canoe and its construction. The third is the most recently published and has been well received.
Further, for Morris canoes, you should get a look at Kathryn Klos's The Morris Canoe: Legacy of an American Family.
These books are all available from the WCHA store, are often on eBay, or from Amazon.
And there is an excellent series of articles about Morris Canoes by Howard Herman-Haase running in the WCHA journal Wooden Canoe -- Part 4 is in the current October issue, issue 209, Vol. 41, No. 5 (mis-dated 2019); earlier parts are available in back issues, and more parts are promised for future issues.
Morris canoes are well regarded; they were built as high-grade canoes, have some unusual building characteristics (e.g., splayed stems, pocketed rib ends, riveted bang plates), and make beautiful boats when well restored. Good luck with yours.
