That was a quick reply, Thanks Kathryn! No pictures yet. I recently moved and need to find my camera and the thingy that lets me download to my computer. The canvas has been removed (not by me) and I can't see any real problems like rot. There is a glob of some kind of automotive(?) filler that looks like a broken rib repair. The varnish needs to be renewed also. I probably won't be able to get to this project until next winter; have an old sloop that needs to go back in the water this year first.
I'll try to post some before pics for the canoe soon.
another question: I'll be looking for canvas for this canoe when I do finally get time to work on it. I know essentially nothing about re-canvassing a canoe, so will be spending considerable time here, I expect.
Still looking for the camera attachments so I can post some pics.
