and I have seen it in a Swift Kipawa and Souris River Wilderness 18. Now I have seen several of both boats and oilcanning is not a manufacturers defect. In the first instance a thwart had been removed. I think the second had some busted foam ribs.

The hull looks fine at rest upside down. Put it in motion and you get the snap bang and can see the bottom move up and down.

BTW we have several old style real oilcans..
