Hi, New to the forum! What a goldmine of information and seemingly the brain trust for w/c canoes in the world! Was given what seems to be a Picard 16'. Had been glassed over and used as a sailboat. Only a couple of cracked ribs but lots of split planks, rotted inwales and the stems/decks are a mess. I think I can handle the inwales but what to do with the bow and stern planks? By glassing them in moisture rotted just the edge an inch or so back- do I tear off all the planks back two feet? Do I just make the boat shorter? Lol. Do I add some more ribs closer to the stems? Do I add the solid triangular stem and shorten the planks? I really would rather not buy/steam/install that much plank. I'm just going to get it floating (with canvas of course). What do you all think? (Note how wide and irregular the planks are - does this give a clue to its pedigree/build year? No serial numbers that I can see.) Thanks!
