get out and put in
I have my Grandfathers canoe which I believe to be a 191? OT Charles River Ideal. It has been worked on and has no identifying numbers. The stems appear to be replaced. The outwales are made up of four pieces. Tow pieces put together in a woven fashion (not scarfed - sorry don't know the term) and then the two ends by the top of the deck are cut at a 45 degree splice. When I got it the Gunwales were painted although the wood appears to be mahogany. I would like to restore the canoe as close to original as possable and am looking for a little OT building history.
