More photo updates to follow, as boat is ready for canvas.
For those seeking an excellent, proven boat for solo tripping, style paddling or a leisurely paddle with a boat easily handled by one person, this one is for sale.
Tips done and new decks in place, boat has been stripped, oiled and has a third coat of varnish currently, on its way to 5.
Choice of colours can be at buyers discretion, for more information please inquire.
While we were going to opt for a more traditional red or green, another customers boat came in and Epifanes Burgundy enamel was chosen. We liked it so much the Chum is waiting on its final coat before gunwales and stembands complete it. All that will be left is to cane the seats before it hits the water.
While the Prospector is only a foot longer, it dwarfs the Chum!
All done, seats are being caned and stembands going on. Epifanes #23 burgundy, looks terrific. Water testing is next, and awaiting a new owner.
Next up is this 50s/60s era Chum, and to choose another great colour
Update: Both Chums sold!
Finished Burgundy boat; second sold as is, owner to restore
An example of the kind of transformation that can happen...
