Tom Angelakis - Huron Cruiser

Dear Ted Moores I finished a Huron this summer and am very happy with it's handling characteristics. The finished pictures are at: http://members.tripod.com/tomangelakis/Finished.htm However, I have deviated from the original plans. All trim is Sitka Spruce; gunwhales are one piece and half the size; I shortened the canoe by 8 inches after removing the centre station mold; and 3oz cloth was used (though two layers on the bottom). Even so, I doubt that it looks that much different than a Huron built to spec. I would be happy to answer any questions. Sincerely, Tom Angelakis
