Filler is curing and the trim is on, sanded, and first two coats of varnish. The seats are caned. One thing of note on these old seats is the curved side pieces which adds a very elegant touch, and so simple to do.
The owner's picked it up a couple of days ago. At that time I learned that this canoe has been in their famiy since 1951, bought by her father in that year and was probably bought as a used canoe.
