Has anyone else noticed that the WCHA website no longer contains any information about the history of wood and canvas and wooden canoes? Are you looking for the Old Town information that was once easily available? The project to catalog the Old Town serial numbers was WCHA funded. It's gone. Are you looking for a way to date your Morris canoe? The tables that were once on the site and the related links and discussion are gone. Would you like to try to sleuth the name of the builder of an acquisition? The images of decks and decals are no longer present on the site. The knowledge base no longer contains content. Where are the names and contact information for the WCHA historians that the uninitiated could contact if they are researching an old canoe? Gone. Has WCHA become WCA? Perhaps the focus has shifted to calendars, assembly and Wooden Canoe? Many of us have been active through the peak of wooden canoe interest. We have researched the builders, worked with some of them, documented and shared information and also attempted to piece together what little history is left about that short window in time when America and Canada loved canoeing and canoes. For quite a few years WCHA members used this site to share their knowledge and research. To some extent that still happens in forum discussions. What is absent (here) is any attempt to structure or organize the information. If you want information like this colors.gif (919×435) (wcha.org) to find it's way back to this site, say something. If you care about the H in WCHA, let the board and site managers know. Yes, there is work being done to preserve the history of our canoes, Home | Wooden Canoe Museum . Frankly, I'm considering allocating my WCHA membership dues to WCM. My interest in the history is far greater than photo ops and calendars.
