Picture if you will, a triangle in the back of my yard. At one point of the triangle is a covered rack with 6 canoes in it, in various stages of construction or restoration. Some actually done! At another point is a 1919 OT Otca that I recanvased just prior to assembly. It is sitting on a couple of sawhorses at the moment. At the third point is another rack with my OT ABS canoe, one complete form and another form under construction. Now envision a 35-40 ft long limb from a very large Chestnut Oak falling smack into the middle of the triangle (right on my hammock...sigh). It is no more than 20 ft from any one of those triangle points! Other than a destroyed hammock, no damage done. Somebody up there must like me today!
