    Steve Gresty Curious about Wooden Canoes

    Hello to one & all,
    Just want to introduce myself, I have been watching the site for a while & now think it's time to join in. Apologies in advance for any mistakes I may make,as I am new to this forum. I have built a cedarstrip in the last couple of years,finally getting her wet last year, and "boy have I got the bug now" I have just purchased (last weekend) a wood canvas canoe that I may need some help with various questions, that I will no doubt have, when I thoroughly assess her this weekend hopefully.
    This site seems to be a realm of information on wood canvas canoes, which info on this subject can be thin on the ground here in the uk
    Best regards
    Steve :)

    Welcome to the fold, Steve.
    Wooden canoes might not be as "thin on the ground" in the UK as you expect.
    You needn't rely solely on virtual community.
