Got a case of gunnel rot.

Would anyone know of a canoe repair shop within a reasonable drive from North New Jersey? Most of the woodwork in this 16 foot canoe seems reasonable but the gunnels need replacing.

Thank you,

kaz of might know someone.

and Ed's Canoe in VT makes gunwales, so they might know of lower NE makers and installers.

Ask on

evening news
just watch the evening news commercials - they have a pill for everything, and all those pill poppers are always smiling and happy

hope I don’t ever catch gunnel rot - I have enough parts failing now

My favorite public radio station
gets underwriting from Satter’s restoration in Branchville, NJ. I would think that would be good place to start.

Wood rails
I have ash gunwale stock up to 20’ zip 13460 Not into shipping it

Thank you all.
For your suggestions. Please continue.

I’m aware of Ed’s and have a shopping list prepared, I’m looking to explore as many alternatives as possible whether I farm out the job or do it myself.
