This is a 1954 Peterborough "Royal" runabout. There is a before pic, and one taken today. Every rib except the 7-8 that are up in the bow are rotten and broken. There are 2 areas of broken planking from severe impacts, one of which was repaired with plywood and broomsticks for ribs. I plan on putting a West System bottom on it. (Something I'd NOT do with a canoe). There is no way I'll be able to soak it up every season.
