Tom Wilson - Freedom 17

Hi Ted/Joan: Finally finished the canoe I started 4 months ago. Attached are some pics of the finished Freedom 17' canoe which just got done. I had the plans for a couple of years but never had the time to get at it. Thankyou a million times for "canoecraft" and producing such high quality plans. Thankyou for answering my e-mails. A few specs: The planking is red ceder which I processed from the log to the planks to the strips. The feature strip is yellow ceder. The trim and seats are ash. The decks are santos rosewood with an ash center strip. Turned out good I think. Thankyou soo much again for being there. Yours very respectfully Tom Wilson, Lumby, B.C., Canada
