John Dawson - Canoe

Just a note to thank you people for producing CANOECRAFT through Harrowsmith. I have enclosed some snaps of my new Peterborough made from your plan. It was a struggle, but thanks to your encouragement we made it! I thought the project was well beyond my skill level - the only power tools I had were a 1/4" drill and a borrowed sander. It is a delightful boat to handle, as well as to look at. John Dawson, Vancouver BC.
