Tom J - Rob Roy

Joan and Ted, Here are two pictures of canoe 1. It was launched on August 1 and is currently undergoing sea trials. It is fast !! also a little tender. My friend did not put a keel on. I intend to have one. This canoe is really fun to paddle !!!! I am working on mine at this time. First planks will be on this week. The cedar for the inner stems makes life easier. The person in the canoe is the owner, a friend named Sandy Bryson. I am already thinking about canoeing in northern Michigan - maybe late this Fall. Thanks for making all this happen. Tom J.
