This is all new to me...soo here goes.. This cut off "Chipewyan" composite canoe has had one end cut off...Having no experience with this kind of material, my question and your recommendations is whether I can make a wooden transom, and secure it safely to the material so that it wouldnt leak. Or am I just thinking it can be saved! Its wide, deep, un-used, and looks like it would make a nice square stern salmon canoe. Thanks in advance for any suggested approaches to saving it.
