E.H. Gerrish Canoe Company - WikipediaE.H. Gerrish (1847-1930) is credited with being the first person to sell wood-canvas canoes commercially. From 1882-1909, Gerrish built and sold canoes from a shop in Bangor, Maine. Early Gerrish canoes contain elements of the birchbark canoes upon which they were based. If studied from earliest-to-latest, the canoes of E.H. Gerrish appear to show the morphing of the wood-canvas from its roots in the birch bark to the modern open gunwale canoe.

Decks and their Coverings for Wooden Boats. - DIY Wood BoatTeak Tongue and Groove Planks. Many small boats have traditionally been decked with tongue and groove planking which was then covered with painted canvas. This, if well done and maintained is an excellent no nonsense method. However like the laid deck it's fore and aft strakes have little or no diagonal or cross beam strength so, it needs tie rods to strengthen the underlying framing. Mignonne was originally constructed in this way and would have been covered with canvas.

1 How to Maintain and Preserve the Small Wood Boat - Great Lakes ...continually may rot the wood underneath. The boat should be stored in the open and not under a shedding tree. Open sunlight will promote evaporation better. If the boat has a drain plug it should be pulled during long storage periods to drain bilge water if the cover fails.

How to make your own canvas bucket - Practical Boat Owner1 Jul 2015 ... We know the drill because we've tried all sorts of buckets over the years: canvas ones with wooden bottoms designed so the wood flats to tip the rim. Great, but in a seaway the wooden bottom swings wildly as you pull the water onboard and thumps threateningly against everything in its path. So get ride of the wood. Better, but the rim won't dip and scoop up water. After a dozen years of trying, we think the perfect deck bucket has evolved, one that can be made by ...

Duckworks - Redecking a Blue Jay - Part 3decking aside, white lead paste was also a traditional bedding compound used in plank scarfs and between dead wood and keel sections, thus it was a well-known preservative in marine applications. Since the removal of lead from paints, paint bedding is less discussed in print now than it was in the 1980's; however, my first venture into the method occurred early in my professional boat carpentry career when I was asked to rebuild (fully restore) an Old Town cedar/canvas dinghy.

Poor Mans Fiberglass, Permanent Exterior Paint, Never Paint Again ...Reading about boats and boat building, (my real hobby) a simple cheap covering was mentioned, canvas and paint. Many old boats built before fiberglass and marine epoxies had canvas impregnated with paint for the decks. If you can find one of those old wooden boats rotting away in the back of some boat yard, some digging with a knife will show that the wood under the painted canvas is as sound as the day the paint was put on. Wanting to save money and make my trailer as light ...
