I recently signed up to learn more infromation about wood and canvas canoes. I am a canoe enthusiast, I own three modern canoes, two solos, a Wenonah Prism and a Mohawk Odyssey 15, and a Wenonah tandem, a 17' Spirit II. I have had a canoe of some sort or another since I was 17 years old, traded a moped for it. I try to do several week long paddling trips a year, I have paddled 550 miles on the Yukon river, done the Everglades Wildernes Waterway (my favorite paddling destination) three times, crossed the Okefenokee Swamp, padddled a sea kayak from Key Largo to Key West, etc. Last weekend, I lost my mind at an estate sale and bought four more canoes, two 1970's vintage fiberglass racing canoes, and two Old Town wood and canvas canoes, a 1963 15' "50 pound" model and a 1936 vintage 16' "Yankee" model. I will be posting in the proper forum my questions and dillemas... My wife is making me a website so that I can include a lot of pictures, she's still working on it, but it will be up soon. So, talk to you soon on the "Wood and Canvas" forum!
