My husband purchased a dirt cheap canoe for me to work on as a new project last summer and when we got it, the guy had some half formed/melted cvc pipe on as gunwhales which we removed and found peices of fiberglass had broken off the edges where i assume the yoke use to be? Not sure Ive never seen a canoe in a shape quit like this so i was hoping someone here might be able to point me in the right direction. I have posted pics of when i got it after sanding and then most recently after stipping it of damaged and what i believe was unnecessary additions to the canoe. Please let me know what steps you think i should take in tackling this new endeavor. Thank you in adavance!
Im also making new seats, i realize this is a motor canoe but i dont have much experience with them nor do i know what the gunwhale area should look like… Any advice greatly appreciated.
