I've got a cool winter project I brought with me to Cali...
Mine is a 1949 vintage...originally served as a guide boat in Nova Scotia then eventually ended up in a barn in Da UP before I got ahold of it. I used it for a season up on the Bois Brule for trout fishing and deer hunting while I was living at Winneboujou Club.
It's been stored outside upside down(thankfully) since about 2009. I got it back from ex#2 about two weeks ago! I'm excited to give her another life and will start utilizing her services again as my 'off-day' personal fishing boat in 2015 when I return to Musky Country.
Presently, she needs a bunch of rehab! New gunwales, new keel, new oar locks and some new skin...but the interior is in great shape! The original cane seats were replaced with solid wood. I think I'll go back to cane!
Sorry, lack of photos until I get her over to my buddies place this weekend! My friends Wanye has a great shop. I'll keep updating the progress as it happens.
Any of you Fellows ever tackle a wood boat project?
I'm all ears...
