My neighbor just had an estate sale and I have a new winter project. It’s a 17 Foot Old Town (from what I can tell from my research). The serial number is 129454-17. It looks like he started the restoration but stopped. The canvas is sanded down and if it was varnished the interior it is now stripped and ready for refinishing after a general cleaning. The keel was removed and is missing. From looking at the hull it came equipped with a floor rack, a step for a mast, and there are shadows screw holes from sponsons. The seats were removed (there are mounting holes). There is a little rot in the bow and strength but overall the wood is in excellent shape. My plan is to accomplish a complete restoration. Strip canvas, replace damaged wood, install new canvas, replace interior seating, and of course paint the hull. I ordered the book “The Wood and Canvas Canoe” and it is an excellent book but one can never have enough reference material. What other books are recommended? I understand there is a source for the build sheets for Old Town canoes. If possible I would appreciate more information on this particular canoe.
