The first exploration into this canoe. Its a custom built by Merton Comstock out of Rockwood, Maine. This was a work boat used by a local friend. He was cleaning house a few years back and passed it on to me. It has set for these years under cover and I am now just getting to the attention it needs. I don't know if it was fiber glass as original, I suspect so. I am thinking of putting canvas on it. Stripping the fiber glass off now, its coming off fairly easily, some wood fiber it lifting off with it but nothing objectionable.
