    Hi Jim,

    You are welcome and I have attached some other images that may help. These are a few that Dan Eaton took during the restoration of the fifty pound model and one from a Morris catalog showing how their gunwales were put together. More Morris and Old Town information can be found in the catalogs contained on the CDs available from http://woodencanoe.org/catalog/index.php?cPath=90_91 and http://www.dragonflycanoe.com/cdrom.htm on the web.

    The inside gunwales were screwed into the decks as shown and everything else was nailed. Good luck and please keep us posted on your progress.

    Benson
