Welcome back! I am glad to see that this forum is back online, but dissapointed that the old postings are not there. I was a recent subscriber and posted one thread for the ident of my old canoe. Some pics were posted but were rather smallish. I will try and replace them. In the mean time i have been doing a lot of reading on the net and have come to the decision that this particular canoe should have a canvas cover in lieu of the current fibre glass. I still have not started to take it apart for further investigation as i wanted to take a few more pics first. I have determined that I need to replace two ribs and three planks, both stems and both decks, inwhales and outwhales front to back and new canvas or fibre glass. Any one have any pointers, things to look out for? i also would like to replace the seats. They appear to be in good shape, but are all wood in a lattice design. They look very uncomfortable compared to the cane seats I have seen. My in-laws have a Bill Brigdon fibreglass canoe with seats made from the nylon stapping found on old lawn chairs and they are very comfortable. An one know of good comfortable seat designs?
