readily driven below the surface of the wood. The 5/16"
flat head tacks are used to fasten the canvas to the face of the
stems. 3 oz. are enough for one canoe.
11/16" tacks approximately 1,000 per lb.

craft such as square sterns, use 7/8"

canoes with 1/4" ribs and
1/8" planking or scale model
canoes, use 1/2"
