Yet another 'glass canoe renovation

Some glass canoes were taken from more traditional shapes, and can display nice sheerlines, and even tumblehome. Trimmed in wood, they dont look bad but cant be left outside uncovered without rot setting in. Another nice 16 footer came in, with a beam of 32" and a depth of 11.5", very close to a Chestnut Pal or similar.   As always, retrieval is the most fun part, and Muskoka actually felt like winter with a layer of snow. 

Nice classic shape

Some nice 5/4 air dried white oak, some of which will become new ribs for the sailing canoe restoration that will be up next. 

Wood is rotted off
