Product Description

This Fancy Old Canoe: A Comprehensive Guide to Restoring Antique Canoes picks up where This Old Canoe: How to Restore Your Wood-Canvas Canoe left off. Whether you are an avid collector of antique canoes or you have limited woodworking experience and just want to get your family’s heirloom canoe back on the water, the two books work together to provide the techniques necessary to achieve success in your canoe-restoration adventure.

Besides all of the technical information, Mike includes a number of stories about old wooden canoes, their people and the restorations that brought them back together again. These stories help put a human face on the process of canoe restoration and gives you hope that almost any canoe is repairable when you follow the directions in the book.
