The rotted stern deck of a 1948 Willits canoe is being rebuilt with new mahogany and white oak (pictured opposite). Meanwhile, an 18' Old Town OTCA sailing canoe is getting a new canvas next week. Also, thirteen new cedar ribs have been bent over a 1905 Rushton Indian Girl. All of these canoes will be documented for my second book -- This Fancy Old Canoe: How To Restore Your Fancy Antique Canoe.
