LOVES Wooden Canoes
We are building a form based on our circa 1927 St. Louis Meramec canoe and in taking measurements for the templates have noticed a minor discrepancy in the sheer line between bow and stern. Is this a typical finding? Due to the age of the canoe or would there have been that much variation when the canoe came off the form? (Perhaps completed on "casual Friday?") We also have a St. Louis Boat and Canoe guide model circa 1935 where the sheer line is the same at bow and stern. Not sure how to proceed with the measurements we have. Thanks.
