    There is a advertising photo shoot in Montauk, New York on September 9th and 10th which wants to rent a green wooden sailing canoe with a white sail. Contact Kelsey Hall at 917-355-1370 or kelseyhall@me.com if you have one and want more information.

    Green Canoe, White Sail

    I replied via email offering Green Canoe, White Sail, but heard nothing. I suspect they changed their boat requirements. Can't say the WCHA didn't try to assist.

    No, they can't say that the WCHA didn't try. I offered to drive down with up to five different sailing canoes, rig, and sail them for two days. Bob Bassett offered his Kennebec sailing canoe as shown at http://boatbarn.wcha.org/for-sale.html as well. They indicated that their total budget for the canoe was slightly more than $1000 so I suggested that they would need to find someone much closer than Maine to be able to rent, transport, rig, and sail a wooden canoe for that. That was when I offered to advertise their request here. I don't know what they ended up doing.

    Having worked in the commercial photography/video industry for many years I can say these things are like clouds. Big, impressive, puffy, and more often than not, resulting in no rain.

    Things change at a moment's notice, on a whim, and today's sailing canoe is now tomorrow's vintage Land Rover because an art director with ADD saw one on a post card in a bar.
