Two Generation Canoe

Jim's old canoe needed a refit years ago and I patched it up and then his friend Walter patched it some more and painted it.  Now it is time for another patch and paint refit, so Mike helped me load it on the car and I took it to Daniel.

I saw this picture shortly after he got it.  It looks like he went directly to using it in spite of its condition. In the past I have done a similar thing with this very boat.  It wore layers of duct tape for about 2 years before I patched it.  It looks like Daniel is carrying on the tradition of using boats a lot and working on them as little as needed.
