Just in time for Christmas, I was able to finish the Peterborough Muskrat. Actually, I sneaked out late Christmas Eve to install the new brass stembands. The old clunky and partly rotted outwales were replaced with a new set of Peterborough style D-shape white ash outwales. I am very pleased with the result and I hope the customer will feel the same when he sees it.
The quarter thwarts are not original, but a great add-on, handy when lifting the canoe and helps keep the ends together. I also installed a new Peterborough deck decal on the bow deck.
