Need a Good Kennebec Decal Image Like This One...

    My canoe restoration is done, thanks to Dave Wermuth. Before work began, I could see the faint outlines of the original decal, as below. If anyone has a better image, I can probably have copies made using an excellent source of mine. The overall length would also be good to know. Can anyone help?

    Obviously, knowing of an existing source would be good too...

    I don't know of anyone who has reproduced this decal so you may need to take that on yourself. Sorry,

    YES! That's exactly what I'm trying to do, but I need a decent image. If someone would be so kind as to post one....

    Hi Jerry - The image you posted is pretty nice. It should be straightforward to correct any defects in that image, color-correct for the aged varnish over it, and then use that image to make a fresh decal. If you do, please keep us posted on how it turns out.

    Jerry, are you going forward and getting a repo created? I would be interested in contributing some $ for getting one printed.
