one canoe is Not like another canoe

The big one above is an 18 (a generous 18!) E.M. White, broad of beam and very stable. However, it needs to be re-canvased…which is clearly not something that can occur in the basement, it is Bigger than we remembered!  The other is our 16 foot unknown, c. 1905 maybe Chestnut company, maybe an Indian Girl, re-canvased with Dacron.  Seaworthy, very nimble, the trade off for being nimble is that it is tippy.
