    Just finished reading Dan's article about Partelow canoes in Wooden Canoe issue 202. Interesting & informative stuff, and a builder I had never heard of. What caught my eye was the advertisement on p.16, which states ''canvas canoes lengths 16, 17, 18 feet, - weights 30, 35, and 40 pounds". These must have been very lightly built canoes! Perhaps this explains the scarcity of survivors. Tom McCloud

    Tom. Evidently that is the weight of the canvas along, not including the wood components.
