I photographed a 15' Greenwood canoe on the water at first light this morning (pictured opposite). Meanwhile, Dave and I are rebuilding the bow-end of an 18' Old Town sailing canoe with sponsons. After that, we will be starting in on repairs to a 17' Willits double-planked hull all-wood canoe and a 16' Rushton Indian Girl with closed gunwales. All of these canoes will be documented for my second book -- This Fancy Old Canoe: How To Restore Your Fancy Antique Canoe.
