This was one of the first canoes designed from the keel up as a solo. It began the revolution that never quite materialized - Roto-moulded kayaks stole the hearts and pocketbooks of the buying public.
Originally made of fiberglass with Brazilian piranha pine rails, trim, and caned seats lovingly hand crafted by Mike Galt. Wet sanding the wood-work with 200-400 grit wet dry paper and Watco will revive the wood's luster, just take care around the fiberglass. This canoe was designed for day trips on flat water with the emphasis on aesthetically pleasing the paddler and onlookers rather than getting from place to place in the shortest possible time.
Count yourself blessed if you have paddled a Galt design and twice blessed if you own one!
