I have a gorgeous, feather-light Coaticook cedar strip/glass canoe by Great Canadian Canoe (RIP) that is languishing more or less unused in storage, and am looking for some input from canoeists before I decide what to do with it. It seems absolutely criminal that this canoe isn't in a lake at least 6 months of the year, if not hanging in someone's living room like a piece of art. Between shipping it across the country and taking the thing in and out of the water in rocky areas the hull has suffered some unsightly scratches, though none above the waterline and none seem to have gone through the fiberglass. If I am going to sell it, the beauty of the boat being a big part of its appeal, how can I determine if the repair of these scratches is worth undertaking? If the repair is too pricy, and the damage brings the resale value down sufficiently I would likely keep it, in which case I'd love to connect with some Lower Mainland paddlers who have some patience with a novice and may want to share use of the boat either in exchange for storage, lessons, good company, what have you. Thought this part of the forum might be a good place to start although I know I'm touching on a few different topics here.
