The old 1945 Peterborough Canoe restoration project
A few select photos of the restoration process:

(original condition)


The original canvas was intact but checked, cracked and splitting from age


even though the decks were in rough shape the old wood was still sound


hand stripping and sanding the old worn finish


The interior stripping is finished and ready for the application of marine spar varnish


A thorough application of Penofin wood preservative to the exterior cedar planking


The exciting art of stretching canvas!

After applying bedding compound the ends of the canvas are tacked onto the hull.

After the canvas filler and primer is completely dry the first coat of high gloss finish is applied.
