Blevens Thompson

At some point in its past this Thompson was re-skinned with fiberglass.   It displayed the usual runs and sags associated with a glass job that got out of hand but the sander quickly revealed all the ugly was in the multi-layered paint.  Usually a curse for traditional canvas-covered canoes, this job was done by someone who knew how to lay glass. Since the glass is smooth and removing it would certainly damage planking the decision was made to retain the fiberglass.

Sanding and fairing the hull has resulted in a camo look!
