    Hello everyone. I'm Kat and a new member.

    I've been reading the forum only a short time, since I picked up an older cedar canvas hull to refurb this winter. It isn't of any historical significance or value really and once finished will be used as a tripping boat and most likely solo.

    We believe it is a Bastien Bros craft although that is unconfirmed, built during the 50's.

    I will post photo's once I have it off the rack and onto the horses in my shop. I am looking forward to this project since completing a cedar strip build this past year and really wanting to learn how to re-canvass it.

    Thanks for reading

    Kat

    Welcome KAT, Hope the restoration goes well and the canoe gives you many fine trips out there in Manitoba.
