Was gifted a 17ft OT Canadienne Canoe from a family member. It looks to have a kevlar layer due to the tone on the inside but I can't be sure. The.. what I assume is royalex seems to be a little faded and brittle but otherwise in good shape. Just did a 3 day trip with a few rapids and put it to the test and was surprised how it handles on the water. Getting it back, I wanted to put a little TLC into it to patch up some of the chips and scrapes (most preexisting) but am struggling to find out what year it was and some specific details on what year this was made and what materials to patch things up with. The confusion is the gunwales are plastic, and all of the models I have seen online are wood or aluminum. Did someone add these after the fact or were there late models before they were discontinued made with plastic? I can woodwork a bit and make gunwales for it, and repair minor dents and scrapes in the hull, but is it worth the effort for what I have? Or is there a source to order pre-manufactured parts. I.e Ed's canoe for thwarts, seats, and yokes. S/n XTC35068M81A Any help would be greatly appreciated.
