I'm looking for some clear white cedar, like one board 1" X 2" X 6 or 8'. I figure I could make the 3 ribs I need out of that. Also looking for a 16' piece of 1" square clear ash to fashion a keel, and a 20' 2 X 4 (or 2 X 6 or 2 X 8 - the wider the better!) of clear spruce to make outwales from.

Any and all suggestions welcome! Thanks.

Look at www.wcha.org and someplace on that site there is a listing of suppliers. Also check with some of the profesional canoe restorers. They may have some small pieces that they'd be willing to sell.

I found one in NY and one in VT that sound like they might be able to help. Thanks Andreas, I'll be checking them out.

Generally I use Douglas Industrial in Watervliet here in the Capital District. They have brass stuff, but I don't think they carry silicon bronze. For the few times I've needed strange stuff I have used Jamestown Distributors, one of FG's sponsors. They have a lot of marine fasteners too. Between Douglas and Jamestown I'll probably be all set, but I do appreciate the lead, and have saved that web site just in case. There are also plenty of suppliers of hardware specific to these old wood & canvas canoes. It is the wood I am having some difficulty finding.

Thanks!

It's essential to choose the right wood supply for our boats. I always buy it from online.
