Any idea how to preserve a dugout canoe? Or who in Belize might know?
Thanks

Would assume a woodworker would know. Chaa Creek makes wooden canoes, so they would certainly know

You might try Norman Eiley at El Fogon. He's a wooden boat builder extraordinaire.

Hello,
A 24'wooden canoe washed up by our pier in San Pedro yesterdat. Who do I contact for preservation information? And/or who might know its age or what kind of wood it is? Could be it belongs in a museum. [Linked Image]
thank you

Probably lost in Rio Dulce and washed out to sea is my guess. See the responses to your original post yesterday for preservation tips. I would suggest keeping out of the sun as it might dry out and crack.

You might also call the Museum of Belize in Belize City. They might have information or someone who would know.

We've recently been using something called rot terminator on older wood that has been in a lot of weather, and it is effective. Castilos can get if for you. It was recommended to us by a person who used it in the restoration of old wooden homes.

Thanks All,
Norman Eiley has promised to come by to take a look. It's being moved into the shade and we'll fill it again with water. I'll start on the Belize City contacts - museums, NICH, archeology dept - after the holidays.
Happy New Year
julie
