Curious about Wooden Canoes
Hi all -- We're in the process of re-covering (truth be told: has become a bit of a restoration as well) our "family" Old Town canoe. I remembered that 35+ years ago we'd called Old Town and they'd mailed us a copy of the 1927 (??) bill of sale. It's fun to learn that the internet has become involved! I am excited to discover the WCHA.

Me and most of "the family" live in the Maine Midcoast.
