Many thanks for the replies I might come back to you Dave on the Spanish Cedar and the canvas.
To be clear ... yes I am from Germany, but I live in WI since May of last year.
I built a white cedar strip canoe in Germany, but I always wanted to own an old canoe so I bought one back in Germany.
So, then I moved to the US so I had to take the canoe with me. There is no better place to restore a canoe then in the US
So, after I decide to go back to canvas and do not epoxy the canoe, I think I need to clean up the inside as well. (everyone happy now
It does not look very bad inside, but I do need to completely remove the old varnish.
So, I tried the heat gun which works pretty good, but not very effective and its tricky to get into the corners.
I tried stripper as well, but I am not sure if my product works very well.
I saw some post here in the forum already so this is repeating some questions.
But is it really personal preference or is there a best way ?
