Just watched the movie "Black Robe" from Netflix. There were plenty of beautiful shots of a small fleet of canoes being paddled down what was supposed to be the St. Lawrence River in the late 1600's. The canoes looked a lot like the big fiberglass birchbark replicas that Ralph Frese used to make. Does anyone know anything about the origin of the canoes used in the movie? Just curious. Too bad Ralph is gone. It would have been fun to call him and ask.
