Need help restoring circa 1950 wood and canvas Old Town canoe. Is there anyone out there who does this around Northeast Ohio? Please contact me! Thanks.
Check the website for the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association.
Suggest that you contact the Cleveland Amateur Boatbuilding and Boating Society. Here is their web site info.
Last month a couple of their members came to our local WCHA chapter to present a session on mast and spar building. They seem to have a wealth of knowledge regarding both boat building and boat restoration and a desire to share their knowledge with others. This should help you get started.
I hope that this is helpful to you.
