    The New Year has me stripping #21 in my new shop.

    This canoe started life as a Bob Brown designed Pirate.
    The Pirate is a great hull, but needed tumblehome. I also rockered the stems and set the forms to make it asymmetrical. I call my Pearl.
    Here's a pic.

    They look SOOOO much better on the water... but then, ALL canoes look better in the water....

    In any case, looks like a beautiful boat! :)

    Hi Jim,

    I just joined the wcha, after meeting Dave Wermouth and seeing all of his beautiful canvas boats.

    I recognize you from the Bear Mountain Forum. Nice boats. I notice you seem to make a lot of solo canoes :).

    I'm starting to get urges to build another boat, but I can't bear to sell them and I'm running out of room to store them.

    Nice work !

    I fully understand your storage problems !
    Sometimes you need to get inventive. Close Relatives, are in my case helpful.

    Solos make it easy for when nobody else wants to go paddling ! They take less time to build. Not to mention they cost less.

    I have sold some, so I could build more. Just a fact of life.

    This building thing is an ADDICTION ! HA !
    I Love it !
