I replaced the outwales on a Wenonah Itasca canoe. The Itasca sat upside down on saw horses for several years in the shade but also in the weather. I guess the water ran down the hull and over time rotted the outwales beyond repair. The inwales were in good enough shape to save. It's a good thing because the inwales were stuck to the hull, probably glued or epoxied.
Is your canoe gel-coated or skin-coated?
