I kept my Vermont Tupper in the living room for a year, and that was a real PITA. Now I keep it in a Public Storage unit across the highway along with my other toys, and that's a lot better.
It also has wood trim. I neglect it terribly, enjoy it immensely, and when it is finally worn out or rotten, I will either take it back to Rob and let him make it like new, or I will sell it cheap to someone who likes to restore abused canoes and they will, I'm sure, speak harshly of the way I treated it ;^)
Life is too short to be a slave to canoe maintenance, although I'm told there are those who actually enjoy that sort of thing.
