Fixing up the "River Critter"

Ernie spent some time last summer fixing up the old "River Critter" decked canoe.  The opening was just too small for Ernie to manage getting in and out of.  The steps were cutting out the fiberglass deck then CNC routing a new plywood support ring.  The plywood was glued and screwed in place with West Systems Epoxy and then the canoe was repainted.

The "River Critter" has been needing some attention for a few years.
