Hello. I think I caught the bug of antique wooden canoeing and antique boats in general,.... thank GOD my wife loves history and the artistry of fine craftsmanship as much as myself, or else I'd be done for! Just starting out,.. looking for my first canoe. Looking for something pre- 1940,... 1920s or earlier suits us for our interests. Well, just wanted to do a quick into and I look forward to learning a lot in the near future! God bless.
