Wooden Canoes are in the Blood
About 15 years ago, I built a first wood/canvas canoe in a group workshop. Unfortunately, I didn't win the raffle to keep the canoe. The guy who won decided on a black and white "cow" pattern. This was back when the Ontario Milk Marketing Board ads featured that pattern on athletes wearing spandex tights. He drove around with that "cownoe" on his car roof for months hoping the MMB would commission him to do a TV commercial.
