    Cinderella. This sad canoe was an auction entry at the 2018 WCHA Assembly. It sold for little money and we hope it can go to the ball again. Any update from the buyer would be great. #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodencanoes #canadiancanoemuseum I am wondering if Dan Miller raised his hand to scratch his nose and went home with this to add to his “roundtuit “ projects?

    No idea. Probably one of the Peterborough area builders. Somewhere I have more details about it from Jim McL. but I don't know where it is at the moment. My recollection is that it was a dump rescue. Now it's someone else's turn to do a rescue?

    @Todd F , it's yours if you want it. It's in Cape Vincent, New York. I'll sweeten the pot with some really good coffee!

    OK, I am technologically embarrassed, no idea how to get a hold of you directly. Looking to head to CT after the new year from the Tidewater area to get a canoe from a solid member. Will put on the tire chains up new Tug Hill to meet up. Look forward to it.

    Into The Mist. The bow of a 1950’s Chestnut Playmate cuts the mist and the mirror finish of the River Great Ouse. Early mornings often present the best paddling opportunities. #woodencanoeheritageassociation #chestnutcanoe #woodcanvascanoe

    Dan, can you provide the dimensions of "Cinderella"? Working the transportation logistics. Will certainly not provide her any "glass" shoes. All wood and canvas! Considering purchasing a reliable canoe trailer for 4 boats. Any advice or suggestions appreciated. I have a full size truck.

    A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON ASSEMBLY! This is the 2014 Assembly as it has never been seen before! Ed and Zach Heaton, owners of Above The World Films, flew their Phantom 1 and Phantom 2 drones high above the beautiful campus of Paul Smith’s College and captured stunning video of the breathtaking scenery and the full scope of the Assembly. This image was taken from an early morning flight #wcha #canoe #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodencanoe #paulsmiths #adirondacks #paulsmithscollege

    INTO THE WILD-
    Dave McDaniel paddles up into the Tamarack trees on a beautiful fall afternoon in late 2009. The setting is a backwater bay of the AuSable River known as Cooke Pond, just west of Oscoda, Michigan. Dave’s canoe is a 1940’s era Thompson Indian, built in Wisconsin. #wcha #canoe #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodencanoe #ausableriver
