@Andy_Szymczak by request, here she is in the 1930s, my actual canoe at Hack’s Canoe Retreat in Mt. Holly, New Jersey as a rental canoe. It’s a wonder she survived at all.
As found in 2004 when I purchased her.
In her current state, awaiting repairs and new skin.
More photos later on. I need to finish the bulk of repairs on my aluminum canoe before January, which is when I plan on completing the wood repairs on the Old Town.
