Photos of My New Chestnut Pal

I promised in my last post that I'd get some photos up so here they are. (Here is the original post: http://pawistik.blogspot.ca/2014/04/i-bought-new-canoe.html)

Still loaded after bringing it home last night. Yes, it's snowing again.

Cracks in the canvas.

It will need to be re-canvassed. 


It looks great from this angle! Importantly, the hull is fair and true and there is a minimum of damage to the wood of the hull itself. 

There is some damage to a rib up toward the stem. The glass and epoxy will need to come out and the rib likely replaced.


The bow deck plate with the Chestnut logo. Add new deck plates to the list of repairs.

The gunwales are pretty soft in some spots. A result of outdoor storage.



Yup, it needs a bit of work.
