Replacing wooden rails on canoe
I`ve been asked to help with the wood restoration of this 50ft Hybrid canoe.
I have worked on all sorts of wooden projects, and I am trying to determine the proper approach to replacing the rails.
The options I have come up with so far are:
- Steam bending (some of those section would have to be 10'+ long)
- Laminating and using epoxy
- or green lumber (which would be possible in local softwood species) Like yellow or clear red cedar.
Any help is greatly appreciated
