    Heff Curious about Wooden Canoes

    hey guys , I am restoring this beauty of a cedar plank and fiberglass freighter canoe. the story I got was this boat was used to deliver people and supplies to the northern native communities. it seems to be very well built.
    have any of you fellow members seen anything like this boat before?
    when I purchased the boat it came with the replacement gunnels, however they are white pine.
    have any of you used white pine before? MGC a fellow member has been very helpful to me in my previous thread, I posted under wood and canvas by accident, and he strongly recommends that I scrap the white pine and get a hardwood like ash or spruce.
    any info is appreciated thank you very much!
