My wife and I are considering this OT canoe (still trying to zero in on exactly what year/model). This picture shows the rotted ribs forward of the forward seat. I assume all of these will need to be replaced. We have worked on wooden boats quite a bit but never on a canoe, and we're trying to assess the magnitude of this project versus purchasing less of a "project" boat. We have a good indoor workshop that is relatively well appointed, and we do love this canoe, but we also want to get on the water! Any thoughts, opinions, advice, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
