    Hello, I'm steve. My wife and I live in Kentucky. We have spent many enjoyable hours on the water but always with runabouts so this is the first time for us owning a canoe. We recently came upon an older 15 foot American Trader's canoe for sale and have been restoring it. We believe this model is called the Huron. In a few weeks we plan on taking her out for the first time. Yes, we'll have so much to learn. Thanks to the forum section and members at WCHA for the knowledge in restoration! You all have played a major role in my restoration project over the past few weeks. I've included a few images of our canoe and the sanding I have been working on. Just this past week the canoe has been completed and I hope to update with more images of our first trip.

    Thanks Denise MsWdnBoat. I ended up using Amber Shellac as suggested by American Trader's on the inner hull of the canoe followed by a coat of varnish.
