I know, I know, it's January. I'm in New England. What did I expect? My first post. I've just discovered the WCHA through a friend in Norwalk, CT. I have been fortunate in meeting a group of very experienced restorers there; John, David and Mariette. They work out of the Wooden Boat Workshop in Norwalk. For a little while longer, anyhow. But that's a story for another post. I'm fascinated how these historic craft can be reclaimed with a little care and effort. Beautiful boats, when done correctly. I look forward to my first project. And learning to edge like Becky Mason. Paddle on!
