Canoe Restoration

Canoe Restoration Project

A canoe restoration project, amazing! There is an opportunity to acquire a rather dilapidated canoe, for free, and the plan is to restore it to it’s former glory. My experience of DIY and the use of fibreglass etc., is non-existent but I hope to learn as I go. It’s an Old Town Discovery 158 and it must be at least 15 years old. An initial inspection of the craft tells me that much of the work required is cosmetic. However, there is a gouge in the hull at one end that may cause leaks. So I’m going to need tools, materials and a whole heap of tutorials. I can’t wait!

I’ll be filming the whole process and will release one or more videos on my YouTube channel in the hopes that they will be of use to someone.
