    My Dad.

    We always had a canoe..or two..and my Dad, a carpenter by trade had the frame of a canoe in his shop. He had that thing in there for years. Plans for it. The beautiful wood laid out in strips.... I never thought he'd actually finish it. A few years ago, when he was close to...

    Canoeing Is a Lot of Fun!

    I really like to go canoeing.  I love being in a boat on the water in the warm sunshine paddling for miles.  I would love to do it again.  I just went for 5 miles but I would love to go for the 10 mile ride.

    I love river canoeing.

    You never know what you might see around the next corner. Early morning in the chilly air is so invigorating! Watching the sunrise over the horizon in a frosty glow of pink always warms my heart. My sons are planning a 50 mile river trip for us this spring. Hopefully after the...

    Love It

    Love the teamwork of canoeing with someone. In contrast, I do not kayaking because it is a one man job and hard work.

    My Winter Project

    The boats are stored for the winter, except those that will need a little sanding/epoxy/varnish on the hulls and the bare wood oiled. So, I'll be starting my next project.It will be a solo touring sea kayak.  I'm thinking about a hybrid design - stressed marine plywood hull and...

    Spring Paddling On The Manistee River

    Last week some friends, my spouse and I decided to paddle on the upper Manistee River in Michigan. Spring is progressing and it always nice to see the seasons on the river. We used our moderately fast tandem, an old Mad River Malecite with a nice stiff hull, fine entry lines...

    Beer And Canoeing

    I like canoeing. I also like good beer.  While I paddle for pleasure, I also enjoy doing my part and cleaning up trash left by other people. Doing a cleanup allows me to practice my maneuvering skills and leave the river a better place at the same time.  I pick up a lot of...

    Voyageur

    I took my canoe out today, carrying it down the back lane to the riverbank, and setting off on the tranquil Seine river, which lacks the magnitude of its French namesake, with a depth of only 3 to 5 feet in most locations, and with a very modest currant. The riverbank landscape...
