    hello ,
    Here is some images of my last exit(release) with my " Old Dad " canoé OT models OTCA 16 ' CS grade of 1936.
    These photos were take snuff on the lake of Guerledan in center Brittany (France), this lake is 12 kilometers long for a 40 meter depth dam(roadblock).
    If members of the forum pass in the region, I would indulge to make you discover this place.
    So long Bill

    Beautiful boat Bill. You'll help me do my canvas.
    I've been once to Guerledan, running around the lake. Nice place to be.

    Thank you Ansrick, effectively the very beautiful place and ideal to practise our passion.
    It is rather funny that two French people find themselves on a forum and exchange in English .:)
    See you soon.
