    Craig Kitchen and his BN Morris are being featured in a series of shows on "Discovering", which is a local sporting program. Craig did a great job. This is a fantastic opportunity to promote the WCHA and the restoration of old canoes... I suspect we'll see some come out of barns and boathouses! The canoe segment comes in at 12.12 in the show, but the fish-part is interesting too:

    Great video. Is this your 15 foot Morris?

    The very last shot on the show is of the thwart on my 15 foot Morris, with the metal tag that says BN Morris/Builder/Veazie, ME. Otherwise, the show stars Craig's 16 foot Morris sailing canoe.

    The Morris is the one that turned up as a result of the Upper Great Lakes Regional assembly in Marquette last July. Chris Pearson and I were crawling all over it after Craig found it. A man walked into the Upper Great Lakes Regional Assembly last July and asked if anyone wanted an old canoe. It's a pretty interesting story. Good video too.
