Pal or Fort?



Curious about Wooden Canoes
new ribs or not

Ok, here is my question. I have two cracked ribs that aren't cracked all the way through, they don't flex when I press on the outside of the canoe. I'm hesitant to replace them because the ribs I have replaced don't match perfectly. In other words if I put new ribs in, they will look like new ribs, I can't get a perfect color match and new ribs just look different. Should I replace them or let it go. Please, give me your thoughts on the matter. thanks
