International Canoe K26 – Zenith, current state

Zenith needs a major rebuild, there are at least six planks to replace and over 20 new ribs required…..and a new deck…..and a mast….ahhh, some sails would be useful as well.

So will this work be worth it? Have a look at the pictures and you’ll see Zenith and hopefully agree that she is worth saving.

Below are a few recent images of Zenith. When I get her in the workshop I’ll post details of the restoration.

    Very much worth saving. Living just up the Deben from Waldringfield, I know of Ernie Nunn’s reputation as a boatbuilder but I had no idea that he had built Canoes.

    Equally I was not aware of any Canoe history on the Deben although there were I14’s around here at the time of her construction.

    These vintage Canoes are very appealing.
