At least you picked an affordable sickness that keeps you out of trouble.

The canoe is stunning!

Milo, Thanks and it if we use it enough it is good exercise. I doubt we will be using it in Quartzite... although the river could be interesting

Hey Kip,

We can make a deal... we need to replace one of the ribs in the canoe and they are all flush buck riveted in there, perhaps at the next resto rally, we can bring the sewing machine and show Susanne how to make window covers, or help her make some in exchange for some metal fabrication on the canoe.

You never know. The river was running last year for a day or two...

Make sure you bring a lifejacket . The lake is real deep and the fish are real big. Don't want you to be a meal for those big monsters in the lake!

being it has been so hot i thought maybe you left the canoe out in the sun to cook the dull off but from the look of you it was just shear elbo grease. it looks excellent. thanks for sharing the pic. looks like you had good therapy judging from the smile on your face.

Louis, this IS your therapy! Nice shop, by the way. Does your Airstream fit in there?

Thanks dsrtgrls!!

Janet and Leon, that is our garage at our house in Ahwatukee... Our trailer does not even fit in the driveway I could only wish for a shop to pull it into. I made sure to give a good smile to the HOA lady when she drove around checking out what I was doing in the garage.

Wow! Funny! I just bought a 17 foot Grumman a few months ago to do the same thing to! I've just started stripping the paint. I kinda thought polishing it would be cool, but looking at all the scratches on the bottom made me think it would be more for show, than go! ha!

Now I'm motivated! Might need to order some extra name plates from VTS for it. hehe!

Ours was scratched up pretty bad on the bottom and had some dents but it polished up pretty nicely and looks much better. Marathon Boat company is building aluminum canoes under the Grumman name and you can purchase the correct bow logos from them. Marathon Boat Group .
