    Mike Fretwell Curious about Wooden Canoes

    I just bought an old wood and canvas canoe and was encouraged to join WCHA by my friend Bruce Clark in Edmonton (he also said to give him a plug).

    My plan is to restore the canoe using, as much as possible, the same materials and techniques used to build it in the first place.

    First order of business will be to try to identify the canoe.

    Welcome to the WCHA!

    Posting pictures, taken from several angles and viewpoints, will help. Also, look for any builder's marks/tags/decals and serial numbers, which could be on the decks, topside or underside of thwarts, on stems...

    Thanks for the reply Paul. I just posted some information under the "research" forum.
