    Kite build

    Christine has begun to build a new stripper and I shall share photos as I can. I may or may not be assisting with this build and she is no longer on this site. She is tracing out forms on plywood, this whole build could take some time but since we have a couple hundred feet of snow thaw is a...

    They had a 20 foot camper trailer, they could have put it on the roof

    Sorry for the fuzzy picture, the family was watching me take the photo. Name that boat, or future shelving.

    Needs a little TLC

    We left the Tremblay at our friends camp and brought home her old canoe for some TLC. Chopper Gun fibreglass. It has been used hard and put away wet a few times but it will help me hone my glass working skills a bit. No rush on this one, we have a year or so. Don't mind the duct tape, needed...

    Christmas Canoe Gifts

    I got one gift but for me it is the best one ever. It came from Rollin Thurlow in Maine. It is a set of plans for the 17 foot B.N. Morris, circa 1908. These could produce a boat identical to the Morris we have out in the boathouse, since it's vintage was between 1905 and 1909. There are 8...

    Rosy Dawn

    This is a customers boat in for repair. It would be the second customer ever. Apparently there is a hole in the glass somewhere, we have yet to find it, but most likely on the outside somewhere. It had some serious water penetration and even after being in the boat house for a couple of months...

    Go Pro

    Ok, so, I bought a Go Pro 4 Black on E-bay last night. Up here they wanted $550 for the Hero 5 and the reviews weren't the greatest and most suggested getting a 4 if you could find them. Local sports store had them on sale for $399 but they all sold out in 2 days. So I resorted to E-Bay Canada...

    No Pain, No Gain

    The Maskwa River. Maskwa means Bear in Cree, but for this weekend it meant Bear-ly any Water. We got away around 9:30 Friday morning under patchy cloud with a forecast of 30% chance of rain Friday, 60% rain and thunderstorms for Saturday. It did drizzle a bit on the way to the Maskwa Project...
