This is a Maine UFO still unidentied but none the less, a good canoe. The planking is all 2" to 3" wide. Both ribs and planks are of a grade just slightly below "select clear." There are tiny knots and run out grain through out the canoe. Workmanship was not Morris or Old Town standards. Still, I like the canoe as it is 15 ft, 60 lbs, and stable. But as the pictures show, each plank shows its edge, some of the deformed but not broken ribs show by their indent on the hull. The second problem; The fill went on well. It was Blanchard's formula and I was happy with the result. however, after I painted these dimples began to show up. Not just on the ends, but as you see, in the center. I will live with the result and use the canoe as it turns out but (I can't be alone) as I refurbish each canoe my standards go up and I want to avoid these mistakes in the future. for the rib problem, relace seems the only option. For the planking, and it was all good, thoroughly soaking and putting an extra tack on each edge and each rib...500 tacks...would that have helped? For the canvas, I have to presume stretching tighter would have avoided this or is there something else going on? Oh yes, it was originally red and I chose blue but that cannot be the problem.
