Again, thanks so much for all the efforts made so far. The rivers are rising around here so I am looking forward to running a few in my 'new' canoe.

I can second the use of mineral spirits. It is a lot less caustic then the other solvents mentioned earlier and I would imagine a lot safer both to the user and the ABS. I just used it to clean up some old outfitting I removed. It softened up the minicell remnants significantly and helped when remov...

Again, thanks for all the response. The collective knowledge here is a great resource. This hull is Royalex and it has no thwarts or gunwales. I thought it would be easier to get the hull a bit out of shape (like the previous owner did) relative to a more ridgid glass boat. If I has a glass version ...

Maybe it doesn't really matter, but I was never clear if there was a difference...

Wanted: Mad River Flashback repair help

I am rehabbing an older green Mad River Flashback. I am not sure if it is an original Flashback or a Flashback II, how to tell the difference, or if it even makes any difference. Regardless, it needs new thwarts and gunwales. I need to know how many thwarts, how long, and the location of the thwarts...
