Bashed up Canvas Canoe

Check out this great pic from Life Magazine featuring a cedar-canvas canoe after a run down some wicked rapids...she's still afloat! Some thick branches have been layed across the hull forming temporary thwarts and a long piece has been lashed to left side forming a temporary gunnel. Amazing that the canvas appears fully intact.

Good Stuff, I like old boats and Life magazine, guess I'm just a little old school?

Great photo....and that wood canvas canoe could be fixed up....not something you can do to synthetic boats....
