The Refurb continues

A big day at the Superior Canoe Shop of Scott Smith; Another step was completed in restoring Verlen's 7,000 mile canoe.

A 12 and 15 inch layer of cloth down the middle, then a full layer to seal the entire canoe reinforcing the bottom bring the Green Monster back to new.

Next the foam will be added to the ends "a new addition" followed by the gunnels, Stern and Bow end caps, and the original seats, along with the new stickers identifying this as the 7000 mile canoe.

Six days to the Hugh Heward and the forecast at this time is - Temps. in the 60's and partly cloudy. The river is high with all the rain we have had; paddlers should enjoy a great fast day on the river.
