April 18, 2012 – Cedar Strip Canoe Finds a Home

Today, the watercraft fleet had a welcome addition when this red cedar strip canoe found a new home.

The canoe was sitting lonely in a farm shed somewhere in Jasper county.┬á She hadn’t been in the water for over a decade and we were lucky enough to be picked as her new home.

Shes’ 18′ long and was made in the late 80’s with western red cedar and not seen much water since then.

Despite this annoying imperfection in the hull, a good refinishing should take care of this stain on an otherwise serviceable canoe!
