    I’m going with a regular green for the 14’ Fox, and that Chestnut Grey for the Cruiser.

        Hi Higgster, The way to get skills is to start. I am rebuilding my first w/c canoe now. At first it seems mysterious and impossible. Now it just a labor intensive process with a lot of steps.
        I do all of my work outside. Can you use basic hand tools competently? Consider a kit,, Join a club. . Find an old beater to learn on. It is all within your grasp.

          Today I am shaping the white cedar replacement ribs for the 1953 OT. The originals taper from the turn of the bilge to the gunwales. They are beveled on both sides. I had to stare at them and ponder for awhile. I laid them out from the center of the ribs. Roughed them out with a jig saw, planed them with a block plane and then finished with the palm sander. Very rewarding process. Steam bending is coming soon.
