    Ossineke Curious about Wooden Canoes

    We have a 17' 6" Shell Lake that had a total restoration about 10 years ago. Every thing still really nice except the paint on the canvas is very dull and stained. Canvas itself and wood appear all in great shape (stored indoors).

    Before new paint: Is it best to sand this craft down to the canvas (filler) or only to the undercoat if it has one! Orbatal sander? What grit might you recommend?

    Thanks- Bill
