Friends, At long last I can say it's done. Now I just have to wait until spring to try it out. Now Jean and I each have a solo canoe. Hull was half built by the late Jack McGreivey, completed and finished by me. It is his Detroit 15 Bantam model of which he built only three. White Cedar ribs and planking, cherry outwales, thwarts and seat. I bought just the hull from Jack. It did not have thwarts or a seat. I made those. No. 12 canvas, Kirby enamel, Epifanes varnish on gunwales, decks, seat & thwarts. Total Boat varnish on interior. I bought it from Jack a number of years ago but just recently finished it. I will bring it to Assembly in July. Jim C.
