    A red, white, and blue canoe for election day: The bow of a 25-foot Old Town War Canoe which was restored in 2013 by members of the WCHA's Northwest Chapter. This canoe has touched the lives of many residents in Grays Harbor, Washington over the years.

    A TRUE CLASSIC: The elegant bow of a Thomas Gordon Canoe from the late nineteenth century. This canoe was given to the WCHA by the family of Felix Badcock in the United Kingdom. It was restored by WCHA member Alick Burt. Here she is on the River Thames early one morning, being the first time the canoe had been on the water for 35 years. It is one of the two known Thomas Gordon canoes in the UK. Photo by Nick Dennis. #wcha #wchaorg #canoe #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodencanoe #thomasgordoncanoe #thamesriver

    Light as a Feather: The 1941 Old Town war canoe Keladi appears to float on air at Camp Sweyolakan on the shores of Mica Bay, Coeur d’Alene Lake, Idaho. This twenty five foot long Old Town war canoe took the better part of two summers to restore as deck supports were fashioned, the stern stem was replaced, new gunwales were crafted, seats rebuilt and caned, and the old canvas was stripped and replaced.

    Atkinson Traveler number 1000: Anne Swidarski and Mark Dagenais were the winners of Atkinson Traveler number 1000 from the Northwoods Canoe Company at the 2014 WCHA Annual Assembly where they promised it would be used. This photo was taken later that year during a paddle on Lac La Pêche Gatineau Park, Quebec.

    A long carry: Keewaydin’s Section A on a portage in northern Quebec with Hudson Bay in the background. Keewaydin first began leading canoe trips for young boys and men through the north woods of Maine in 1893. It has been in continuous operation since its founding year and is home to the world’s largest fleet of working wood-and-canvas canoes, 125 in total.

    SMALL BUT SATISFYING: Ken Kelly’s “Button” was built in 1997 by Tom MacKenzie of The Loon Works. Covered with dacron, the canoe comes in at at delightful 35 lbs and is a very responsive canoe. Here it sits outside Ken’s cabin at Twin Lakes in Michigan ready for a chilly paddle. Photo by Ken Kelly. #wcha #wchaorg #canoe #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodencanoe #twinlakes #loonworks
