    ROUNDING THE POINT: Member Thomas Dolgas caught this magical moment on an early morning paddle during Assembly 2011. He never got a chance to speak with the paddler, so his identity is unknown, but the spirit of the moment will resonate with anyone who has ever paddled the quiet waters of the Adirondacks. #wcha #wchaorg #canoe #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodencanoe #wchaassembly #adirondacks

    SOLO IN A NICELY RESTORED GREEN OLD TOWN CANOE FOR SAINT PATRICK'S DAY: Rose Pearson skillfully guides her 1953 OLD TOWN Fifty Pound model along Pigeon Creek near Holland, Michigan. Rose’s dad, Chris, did the restoration work on this AA grade Old Town. This included new mahogany decks, inwales, outwales, rub rails, seven ribs, some planking, stem repairs, and new canvas. #wcha #wchaorg #canoe #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodencanoe #oldtowncanoe #pigeoncreek

    AMONG THE GRASSES: Pioneering builder Daniel Herald revolutionized the canoe manufacturing industry by developing the solid, metal-banded canoe-building form on which he built his unique style of double-hull canoe. This 15-foot-long Den Herald canoe was built in the 1870s in Gore's Landing, Rice Lake, Ontario. It is made of white cedar, white oak, butternut, walnut and tamarack.

    WILLIAM ENGLISH MODEL 21 CANOE: Sometime in the early 1900’s, Peterborough area builder William English built this graceful wide-board 16 foot canoe and named it Model 21. A few years ago, member Ralph Nimtz bought it and undertook an extensive restoration, saving as much of the original material and character as possible. Ralph notes that even the double bladed paddle is half original and half replica. The picture was taken on Elfin Lake in Wallingford, Vermont. #wcha #wchaorg #canoe #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodencanoe #williamenglishcanoe #ralphscanoes #elfinlake
