She’s what might be referred to in technical terms as “a basket case.” An Old Town 18′ Guide has a total of 57 ribs – this boat needs 32 of them replaced.  When I finished marking the planking that needs to be replaced it was difficult to find the runs that would get to stay. Why undertake such a project? Because it can be done and wooden boats have souls – this one’s not done yet.

In case you missed it, you can follow along with the project here.

Poor canoe. She just wasn’t given enough preventative care in time. You can fix it!!! Yes, you can!!! (Well, I think you can.)
