Restoration Of Vintage Canoes

Click on picture for enlargementCARRYING PLACE CANOE WORKS also specializes in the restoration of vintage canoes. Many people can not part with their old canoes. We have had some extremely abused, neglected or just plain old and well used canoes in for repair.

An old canoe that was bought at a sale, needed 32 ribs replaced, nearly all the planking, both stems, inwales, decks, outwales, canvas, stem bands, keel and seats.

He was joyful to own one again it its original condition. We did save one of the decks that still had the tin-type number, identifying it for a keepsake.

Whether you canoe needs a major repair or a re-enamel and varnish job, we are pleased to take on the task. We always take care to restore your canoe to its original glory. Care is given to detail and only the finest materials are used.
