Alan,

Thanks for sharing...beautiful pics. Also interesting to hear about Gaia GPS and Zoleo products. Hopefully your canoe survived the cart on that trail with no damage.

The canoe has lots of scratches and dings on it from last season and this season. I'm sure I added a few more dents and dings from the cart trail mishaps. I'll be re-varnishing over the winter and will probably find some things that need patching/repair.

The worst damage so far was I actually split out a section of inner gunnel back in June. I was standing, poling along in some flat, shallow water, when I lost my balance and fell back into the seat hard. But I repaired it and you can hardly tell it was ever damaged. Maybe I'll post on those repairs (thought i had but now I'm not sure). [Edit: Yes, I did post that work at the end of the build thread.]

The scratches and dings bothered me at first but not any more. I built it to use it and it's a well-used canoe at this point. Still beautiful to my eyes.
