LOVES Wooden Canoes
how come no mention of the kronje', a great tripping chestnut that is lighter and faster than the prospector
I'm not sure what Jerry does in this regard - maybe his design is better at allowing water to drain. Sounds like he just folds a piece of brass around the end? Do you have a picture of it by any chance?
It appears that Jerry does just fold a piece of non-ferrous metal around the end as shown at http://webservices.phdcon.com/inven...427_52471.jpg&width=310&height=475&crop=false and http://webservices.phdcon.com/inven...57_164401.jpg&width=640&height=424&crop=false on his web site. The Old Town style is shown at http://www.wcha.org/catalogs/old-town/covers/large-85.gif and could trap some water when inverted although a small hole could be drilled to reduce this problem.
