Today we will be canvasing a closed gunwale Old Town OTCA. This boat was built around 1910. It was in fairly good shape but we still have 50 hours of work in the boat to this stage. After the boat is canvas a heavy gray filler coat is hand rubbed into the weave of the canvas.
Tune in and watch!
Welcome to the Blog of the Northwoods Canoe Web Cam. Located in Atkinson, Maine, we have been custom building new and restoring wooden boats and canoes for over 30 years. We specialize in wood and canvas canoe construction but we also work on a wide selection of wooden boats. In addition to the work on the boats and canoes we offer a wide range of specialized canoe material to those working on their own boat. Private classes are offered to those that want to come to the shop and build their own wooden canoe.
The web cam in the shop is very recent and we are still in the experimental stage with it.
