Above: One reason people build boats is that they give you the opportunity to find beauty in otherwise inaccessible places. Paddlers in a 16′ Prospector check out an amazing faulted rock formation in northwestern Quebec, September 2008.
The closest (above) a 16’ Prospector canoe. In the center is Ron Frenette and his wife in their 17’ Nomad canoe. On the outside is a traditional wood and canvas canoe built in the 1950s.
For more information on people building small, traditional wooden canoes and kayaks, see our article on the Small Craft Builders Rendezvous in Peterborough, Ontario.
