Old Town Fiberglass Canoes

From Canoes: A Natural History in North America by Mark Neuzil and Norman Sims

Info

  • Fiberglass is applied from a sheet or off of a roll onto a canoe mold, sometimes with other synthetic products to form a laminate. Manufacturers can also vary the resins used to harden it. The resins can be toxic, so workers wear protection when assembling it.
