I need to let go of my Old Town Discovery canoe. It was purchased in the late 80’s/early 90’s. It has been stored outdoors upside down on saw horses in the shade since then. It hasn’t been taken on the water for many years.
What can I do to test the hull integrity beyond visual inspection? The canoe had no significant damage from use. I don’t know what to tell a prospective buyer about its current water-worthiness. Please advise if you have any suggestions.
It appears to be in good shape with visual inspection but does it become brittle or otherwise unsafe? If it is okay, I’d love for it to have a good home. My dream? to trade it for a kayak! But i know that is probably just a dream…(It’s in Marin County, CA by the way)
