    Hey Guys:

    I was wondering if the old builders used canvas filler on the hull to cover in any low spots, cracks, low nails ect., before canvassing? If not canvas filler, what was the material they where using for this?

    Cheers;

    I've noticed a product which appears to be "PLASTIC WOOD" by Lepage was used by many w/c canoe manufactures . I have successfuly used it , no problems so far .
