Slow on the board these days, so maybe a post to liven things up. Well, I finally got that Chestnut Prospector I was playing with before the Great Crash of '04 to a point where I thought I could put new skin on. I offered to host a chapter canvas party for any Norumbega Chapter members that wanted to do something hands on. So last Sunday, half a dozen local folks converged on my garage and we put the skin on in a little more than an hour. Many thanks to Bill Clements, Steve Lapey, Lou Mutschler, Bill Conrad, Bob Wadon, and neighbor, Rob MacCormick for all the able hands. It was an enjoyable afternoon learning a few tips, talking about old canoes, and discussing summer trip plans. The project is a 1970's vintage 17 foot Prospector that I'm rehabbing to use as a camping and tripping canoe. There are some photos of the canoe here: http://community.webshots.com/album/230378032VtcVTM Unfortunately, we were so busy stretching canvas that no photos of the event were taken, but I'll update the album as the project goes along.
