    modern equivalent to doped canvas?

    13&1/2 lb as shown. the rib frames are much heavier than they need to be. if there's a next time, the design will be refined some. polyurethaned most of the wood frame today. it's slow going, shop too small, can't work on it in foul weather.

    modern equivalent to doped canvas?

    apologies if this has been covered(!) elsewhere. not a UL, though maybe one day. i've built a stick kayak frame and am almost ready to cover it, mid-1960s plans say doped canvas. has technology advanced since then?
