Craig Harvey - Ranger

In March of 2003 I bought a new copy of Canoecraft and started a 15 ft Ranger.I completed it in June and have paddled it quite a bit over the summer and fall.I built the Ranger because of the availability of 16 ft lumber.The boat paddles nice,is very stable and carries a good load.I live in upstate New York a couple of hours from the St Regis Wilderness area in the Adirondack Park and it is a canoe paradise.My wife and I have made 3 trips to this area this Fall with our Ranger and love it.Thanks Bearmountain for making this possible.I've attached a couple of pictures of our Ranger on the shore of Follensby Clear Pond. Craig Harvey Took my 15ft ranger out for the first time last night.I love it.In 1988 I bought the Canoecraft book and built the Hiawatha.My wife and I paddled many miles in it and recently decided we wanted something with a little more volume to it for camping.We bought the updated version of Canoecraft and built the Ranger.It is larger,more stable and seems to paddle just as easy.Thanks Bear Mt for a great book. craig harvey
