Navarro Canoe

by Valerie
(Newport OR )

I have a lovely wood and fiberglass Navarro canoe that needs some repair work to the outer wood gunnels and decks.

I have no skills in this and wonder if anyone would know of someone in the Newport OR area who might take this on.

Navarro Canoe Repair skills
by: John C.

I know this is an old post, but did you get your canoe repaired?

If not, I don't know anyone in Newport but have done a couple of Navarro restorations (rib repair, gunwale and deck replacement) as a hobby thing and might consider doing another.

I am in Portland, however. I'll watch the forum to see if there is a reply.
