I live in a part of Pennsylvania where camouflage is the uniform of the day, and I see more camo canoes & kayaks than anything else … nut none quite as ugly as mine. Don’t ask me about the wretched artwork; I didn’t do it. The turquoise squiggles confuse me. But she doesn’t leak due to some really ugly, but apparently effective remedies.
This summer, the multitude of storms that passed through took a couple swipes at her, blowing her off her horses and then breaking a branch off of a tree and crunching the stern on the starboard side.
Photos of the beautiful boats here have inspired me to do something about the visual state of this boat. It’ll never be pristine again, but I can make her really shine. Here she is in her current state after stripping most of the hull.
Today, I’ll attempt to massage out the large crinkles at the stern. Progress photos later.
