The Three Rivers Chapter met on Saturday, March 10th for a wonderful session presented by Ric Altfather on the Bird's-Mouth method of building hollow masts for sailing canoes. Ric gave us a beautifully organized session augmented with multiple pages of data and with samples. All in attendance enjoyed his presentation, asked many questions, and learned a great deal. Several of us are now building, or are most eager to build sailing rigs and to get out on the water as soon as the weather allows. We suggested that Ric might develop this presentation into a "Wooden Canoe" article and perhaps even a program at the Assembly.
