WHAT IS INVOLVED IN A CANOE RESTORATION?

Every restoration project is different and the scope of work depends upon the condition of the canoe and the client's desires and budget.  Below is an outline of the process for a typical canoe restoration.


We start each project with a thorough assessment of a boat's condition and provide an estimate for the total cost of restoration before beginning work.
