Does anyone have any examples or ideas for a low shear Old Town Guide Special?
Here is an 18' OT Guide, 1966. It was built 2" deeper than stock, for wilderness tripping.
Quite interesting. A lot more canvas there to work with. Thanks for sharing.
Here are a pair of romantic snow geese flying off in the moonlight on my recently completed Robertson Courting Canoe. Four foot decks.
Oh my, well done. The bar has been set.......
Wow, beautiful RC!!!!!!!!
Thanks for your comment. That is a real compliment coming from you!
Here is the lastest in my group. Restoration finished this summer at Salmon Falls. Dylan and Emily did a great job. Stripe work was done in Grand Rapids. Kept the orginial paint design, though changed the colors and added the name and water lily graphic. She paddles very nicely. Not the more typical 48" decks, but 53"?...guess that was the size of the wood they had to work with?
Truly beautiful canoe and design. Inspired design theme and photo with the canoe resting on the water surface covered with lily pads.
The artwork on the Belle Isle Morris is absolutely fantastic...it must have been something to behold in it's original state because it really still is a work of art despite it's age!
Beautiful canoe, as usual. Does it have traditional filler or something else?
Thanks Gil, I think it is traditional.
Very much enjoyed looking at his older thread showing canoe artwork. Would anyone be able to recommend someone in central or western NY who does this type of artistic work? Please feel free to PM me if not appropriate to post. Thanks much,
Gorgeous canoe. Very elegant.
OK, forgive me for this but need to get this out there before Andre does.
Pictures of Lily made my life so wonderful
Pictures of Lily helped me sleep at night
For me and Lily are together in my dreams
And I ask you, "Hey mister, have you ever seen"
"Pictures of Lily?"
Kokopelli design on 1940 HW w/spontoons.
I don't know anyone in that area who does this but you may want to start with a good local sign painter. If all else fails then contact your local fire department and find out who does the lettering on their trucks. This will usually get you pointed in the right direction. Good luck,
Thanks much for the tips!
Art for canoes
Try the pinstripers and artists who decorate hot rods and motorcycles.
Sorry I got sidetracked with the Who lyrics...I meant to note that there is a Rochester pinstriper that I plan to try one of these days, Rochester Pintstriping. He advertises that he does boats....it looks like he does art and lettering. He also does gold leaf.
Rochester Sign also looks like a possible option.
