I'd love any information you had on the 'Prescott Boat and Canoe Company' out of Brewer ME in business from 1941-52 but I'm guessing that you have as little information as the Brewer, ME Historical\al Society.
I hope to be up your way next year for a paddle in Temagami, this year I'm only going as far as Algonquin.

I did weave a pair of seats for a late model Chestnut and saw there was difference in the weave. I weave at night in front of the computer watching the Bruins Games.

Thank you for the offer, I on the Canoe Tripping Forum and have a couple guys that are helping me with the canvas.

Have you ever heard of using Pine Tar to fill and finish the canvas?

Akta Tratjara below the Flugger Archaia translates to Hair Wood Tar at 2:38 in the video
