Building a canoe

I am often asked "What do you do in the winter?" and while the typical answer is "a lot of napping" it really depends.  After the 2012 season, I took up amateur boat building with a great group of retired guys that had some boat building experience and a great workshop (it was a barn).

Behind the Boats

Ever wonder what life is like running a canoe company? Some people do. I've gotten questions ranging from "How many times have you been to the Boundary Waters?" (one) to "What do you do in the Winter?" (it depends) and my personal favorite "You must love paddling" (paddling is #4 on the list).
