  I guess it depends who does it...

I went to a freestyle symposium a few years ago and talked (as well as showed him my boat, a Magic(Bell) and he wanted close to $600 to regunnel it at the time... He's an extremely competent woodworker as he makes and sells MANY paddles and, of which I purchased one, but I couldn't justify the expense. I bought the canoe and a beautiful Nashwaak cherry paddle for $800, thanks to a former poster(NT)'s tip. the previous owner had drilled some holes in the gunnels that had started to rot and I thought I might just bring the boat back to original condition, but decided the next owner could have that chance.....You know, the Magic is a great design, but I haven't even paddled it in a couple years...I've sortof moved on to daytrippers and it sits unused...
