Knowing in reality there is no such thing as a free canoe, I march relentlessly forward. I really have no idea what manufacture this is, nor does it much matter with the shape it's in currently. Why it might just be one of those "beyond hope, don't waste the money or time, it'll make good firewood" canoes. But being a Boyscout leader, and wanting the scouts to accomplish something other than sleeping in a tent, again I move forward. Most of the ribs are cracked at the top, at least four are broken at the water line, the inner rails are junque as are the decks. The previous owner/abuser tried to glass over the hull......tried is the operative word....failed miserably is more accurate, then left it laying upside down on the ground so the decks could wrought thoroughly. And I even found a few soft spots in the planking..........it has around six different layers of paint under the fiberglass? which I removed yesterday to find a pretty decent hull, other than at the rails. Okay so I know the answer, but the Scotsman in me won't let me toss it. 13' square stern, and ugly as hell. As soon as you stop laughing..........could you tell me where I might start? And no not with a glass of gasoline! The first pic is of the hull stripped of fiberglass, then a long shot of the stripped canoe, and the third was the horrible fiberglass attempt before I ripped and ground it off.
