Long answer short, this is:
This creation found its way into the shop. Still not sure what to make of it!
German makers marque. The internet provided some clues, as usual.
Mustang model, 15' long.
Sealed flotation in the ends, with a hatch for storage.
Love it or hate it, it needs some 'glass patching, smoothing and paint.
Third seat to be put back in, might not make a bad kid hauler and/or fishing machine.
Similar model from the web, with tractor seats. Now we know what the cords 'glassed into the sides were for - flotation.
Patches done, holes filled
patched inside and out
stronger than before
Primer on the inside
Topside done, ready for paint
Now for the flip
Next is the two tone paint and new seats of Mahogany Ply.
Primed and masked, ready for paint
Here's the look we're going for
Epifanes, single part marine enamel. Fantastic paint.
One side done.
Inside, coaming and lower hull will all be white.
2nd and 3rd coat will even out the finish, after sanding and prep.
Next up, seats. Mahogany ply to be cut, shaped stained and varnished.
Just the lower half left to paint
Matches the Toyota pretty closely!
Nasty old waterlogged mahogany ply seats
New seats x3
Some stain to bring up the grain, then varnish.
Seats in, almost done
3 or 4 coats of varnish on seats, paint the bottom and stripe the joint and its ready for spring
Used top have it in green.
I loved this canoe, it could carry lots of stuff ! A bity heavy though.
Cheers from France
