Curious about Wooden Canoes
It's been about 10 yrs since I've been a member and regular visitor to the WCHA web site. I'd like to tap into the vast knowledge out there....I'm restoring an Old Town Octa (1929) but both tips are rotted away. Does anyone have a photo/dwg of the detail where the Stem ends, and inwales come together? Other than that, the hull is in great shape. It was restored once about 20 yrs ago, but the canvas split shortly thereafter and it sat around until now. This is my first cedar/canvas project, though I've built a few plywood lapstrake solo-paddle canoes.
