    Fitz Wooden Canoes are in the Blood

    Racing Stripe

    Well, I put a stripe on.

    I think I'll call it done and launch it. If Sunday is a nice day in Maine, Pa and I will go for a spin. I hear the foliage is near peak too.

    I've included a Before and After shot.


    I think the haze on the paint job is condensation. The temperature dropped like a rock tonight.

    Beautiful Fitz! I would think the smile on Dad's face makes the hard work you put in all the more worth it. Well done.

    Yep, he's happy.

    Dad's happy with his "new" old boat. He could probably use a smaller canoe, but my mother likes the stability of the Guide. They will use it quite a bit in the spring fishing for lunkers.

    They may get to use it a few more times before the lake gets hard.
