Hey everyone, I'm Dave. I'm new to the forum, but not to canoes. I've been an avid paddler since the mid 60's. I have built 6 canoes over the years and "was" a member of the WCHA back in the '80's & '90's (I need to renew my membership.. Ooops.) I'm currently paddling a Navarro Loon 16. It's a glass boat with cherry ribs, ash gunwales and butternut decks. Not a pure stripper but lovely nonetheless. I really need to get busy and build another boat.. maybe some of you can inspire me to get going. Looking forward to seeing what goes on here.. Dave.
