Tom’s Wenonah Voyager went home from the shop with a single coat of spar urethane rolled and tipped and a plan for Tom to wet sand the hull and roll/tip the second coat. That was August 14.

Wet sanding apparently took a month and the Voyager stayed on sawhorses out in the yard. Tom sent me photos this morning of his progress.

That’ll buff right out.

All the pieces are there, it is fixable, but the Voyager may not see a lot of reservoir permitted use the rest of this season.

I sense the spirit of my late friend Brian again, that was once his canoe. Not the first time his trickster spirit has holed a canoe. When I went to pick up Brian’s derelict RX Explorer for refurbishment it wasn’t on his rack.

Quote:
Of course it had lived outside as a shadedrack Queen for the last 15 years.

Correction, it had been a rack Queen for 14 years, 11 months and 3 weeks. Less then a week before I arrived it blew off the rack, sailed over a fence and landed on a tall metal stake.

That RX Explorer is a heavy canoe, it would have taken a tornado to loft it over the fence. I think Brian just wants to see me keep fixing his old boats.

The hole in Tom’s Voyager will make Joel feel better about the hole he put in the Sundowner yesterday. But that’s another story.
