Follow me as I attempt to restore a 25 year old canoe. My Old Town Explorer 158 needs some attention and I am going to give it a try. I enjoy all forms of paddlesport and I am a British Canoeing Coach. So when I got the chance to own an Old Town canoe that needed a bit of TLC, I decided to give it a try. So this is the first video in a series. In Part 1 I begin to strip down the boat and assess how bad things are. I then start to give it a good clean.
