Leather – where can one get it? Posted by Tim Shaw On January 30, 2011 Filed under Boatbuilding, Skin-on-frame Outrigger Canoe (2010) 7 Comments High boat peeps. I am having a hard time tracking down leather for use in anti-chaffing capacities on AL DEMANY CHIMAN. I have found oar leather kits, but I need it less pre-prepared than that. Anyone have any good sources?

You might consider elk or moose. Both are used for really tough moccasins and soles. Moose is heavier than elk. Both remain flexible even after a soaking and drying. Dave Reply Build a Canoe says: Yeah I hate chaffing, I’ve tried all sorts but found moose to be the best, if that helps.
