Free canoe with a very Big Hole!!

Last weekend a friend picked up a free fiberglass canoe! The owner was going to take it to the dump. So Henry hauled it away and brought it to me. Henry kept the few pieces of fiberglass that were broken away. The hole was about 4” wide by 10” long. A big hole!!

The first thing I did was put the pieces back like a puzzle, then added a few sheets of 6oz fiberglass cloth and epoxied them into place. I then turn her over and started the repair and fairing process till she was ready for paint. 

Henry and his grandson Gage plan to give her a camo paint job to ready her for duck and goose hunting!

The whole process took about 2 hours over a three days period. Three days because we had to wait on epoxy drying time.
