Re: The Chronicles of the Wooden Shoe- TR pg 11

An old friend and I used to duck hunt every Christmas Eve. I remember the mild anxiety of not knowing if we would make it back for family traditions. We always did. And we always had big fun.

Re: And we're off.... (canoe build) page 5 bump

I left off with a hull sanded smooth and ready for fiberglassing. This step has always been a bit concerning as a lot of energy and money can be wasted if done improperly.
