    Thought I'd post a couple pictures of a canoe in the collection of Ralph Frese. If anyone else got pictures of this canoe during the 4-26-09 tour, please feel free to add them. It was great fun discovering who manufactured this interesting canoe.

    All I know is what's on Dan's site-- http://dragonflycanoe.com/id/ -- as stated there, the only known catalog dates from 1902, so it's one of the earlier companies. Ralph's canoe is in great condition and was one that I wouldn't have minded following me home...
