    Ernest Child Curious about Wooden Canoes

    Hi all -- We're in the process of re-covering (truth be told: has become a bit of a restoration as well) our "family" Old Town canoe. I remembered that 35+ years ago we'd called Old Town and they'd mailed us a copy of the 1927 (??) bill of sale. It's fun to learn that the internet has become involved! I am excited to discover the WCHA.

    Me and most of "the family" live in the Maine Midcoast.

    Welcome Ernest and John, you'll find these forums a wealth of information partnered with many very knowledgeable and helpful people. As a hobbyist whose being restoring old wood canoes for many years I find you can get an answer to most questions you might have, with a search in these forums. Then if you are still stuck a new post will bring a quick response with all you'll need to solve the problem.
    Best of luck with the restoration be sure to post pictures as you proceed.

    Ernest, John,
