    HAPPY CANOE DAY: wherever you are in the world grab a canoe, paddle and a friend. It’s good for the mind and body. Here a Chestnut Canoe approaches Brograve Mill on the Norfolk Broads UK. One has been restored, the other waits it’s fate. #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodcanoe #chestnutcanoe #norfolkbroads

    SKIN ON FRAME: such canoes and kayaks have been around for many years with examples found in museums around the world. The modern skin on frame canoe is an exceptionally light but strong canoe using ballistic nylon stretched over a frame. This modern example is owned by WCHA member Rob Stevens; it weighs just 20lbs in old money. An easy portage. #woodcanoe #woodencanoeheritageassociation #canadiancanoemuseum #cndcanoemuseum

    BEFORE & AFTER: The Penn Yan Kingfisher is a sweet little 14-foot square-stern canoe designed for rowing, paddling or motoring. This one, built around 1939, is back on the water after a complete restoration. With oars and it’s 1936 Elto Handitwin outboard, this Kingfisher is ready to fly across the water again. Restored and photographed by Michael Grace #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodcanoe #woodboatsofinstagram

    PATENT RIB: You cannot fail to love a cedar rib canoe. This one has been in the same family for 60years in the 1000 islands area. Beautiful. Photo Nubar Alexanian #woodencanoeheritageassociation #peterboroughcanoe #canadiancanoemuseum

    SEEING DOUBLE: one Peterborough cedar rib canoe is rare enough but a pair is like a blue moon especially when they are 4000 miles from their birthplace. This pair in the UK are owned by Nick Dennis and Sam Browning and reside within a few miles of each other. The enigmatic cedar rib; a canoe. For all seasons. #woodencanoeheritageassociation #canadiancanoemuseum #woodencanoe #peterboroughcanoe

    ANYONE IN THERE? : A group of Willits Bros. canoe enthusiasts held a gathering recently in Gig Harbor, WA, and the results were apparently wonderful. Held in and around the Antique Airplane Museum at the Tacoma Narrows Airport, a crowd of beautiful Willits canoes - restored and unrestored were on display. Photo credit Chris Eden

    WHITE IN FULL COLOUR : This all-original, unrestored 1950 E.M White canoe is only 15’ long and sports wide outwales and half ribs. E.M White canoes are best known as long (often 18.5’) guide canoes built to carry heavy loads. This one was used for many years by a New Hampshire outdoorsman, then found its way to Texas, and ultimately to Georgia where it was photographed here in the Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge.

    AN ECLECTIC MIX: An important part of WCHA membership is Chapter outings which gives likeminded people the chance to meet and share their enthusiasm for wooden canoes. Here, members of the UK Chapter take on St Patricks Stream off the river Thames. Other similar gatherings take place throughout the year. Check out your local Chapter and join in.

    SAVING A THOUSAND WORDS: This phrase is often said about the value of a photograph. This one is about capturing the image - photographing an early Rushton Bucktail canoe on a small pond at dawn. The little 10 1/2 foot Bucktail was fully restored by Michael Grace after sitting unused for well more than 100 years. #woodcanoe #woodencanoeheritageassociation #canadiancanoemuseum Photo: M Grace
