    It appeared that they began the trip with 4 canoes and finished with 3. Wonder what the story was. Heavily overloaded, no life jackets. Any guesses what kind of canoes? At one place where you get a glimpse of a deck it looks like it might have a Chestnut decal on it. Tom McCloud

    Fitz Wooden Canoes are in the Blood

    I believe they had two "19 foot" canoes and a Folboat. There is one scene with an extra canoe at the base of some falls that I caught. It looked like a Y-stern, not unlike one my tripping bud owns (his is a Chestnut -Ogilvy "Pool"). I think it belonged to native residents near the falls though. Based on the condition of the two "19 footers", I suspected they might belong to the native guides that were on the trip. I saw a heart-shaped deck. I was guessing maybe Chestnuts, or possible native built Huron-like canoes.
