1952 Penn Yan Kingfisher Canoe
   
Kingfisher on arrival 1 This rowing canoe is in the shop for its first restoration in 63 years. It is a wondrful old canoe/rowboat made of red cedar ribs and planking and ash rails, seats, decks, outside stem, transom and keel. And it's a real pleasure to remove the original canvas and begin the restoration.

Restoration is long term maintenance where the cracked and broken is repaired; the rotted is removed and replaced; and the old finish stripped away and a new finished applied.
