  Rot concern
  Posted by: pgeorg on Apr-03-13 6:21 PM (EST)

I recently commissioned a new canoe. I was/am concerned about gunwales rotting because I have to store outside. The builder assured me that the cherry gunwales he normally installs would hold up with a bit of annual care. I researched the matter a bit online and found a chart showing that cherry is, indeed, fairly impervious to rot. More so, according to the chart, than the commonly used ash. Course, I can't find that chart again.
