    Is the television you're yelling at in Kauai?
    Thanks, Elixir.
    Sorry, Northern Ontario. These canoes were invented in New Brunswick and New England because that's where the Eastern White Cedar grows.
    Some wood/canvas canoe brands now use Western Red Cedar for the planking, because it's available in long, knot-free runs, but still tend to use Eastern White Cedar because it bends better (less brittle).
    Is it stuffy in here, or is it just me?

    Didn't think the photos looked like Kauai! Why the name?
    Regardless - just looking at those pictures puts me in a calm, quiet gliding place in my mind. Thank you!

    When I turned this into a regular business instead of a sideline or a paying hobby, we were working as caretakers at a canoe camp on Lake Temagami in Northern Ontario. It was on an island called Garden Island. They were one of my customers. The other camp that I still do canoe work for is on Devil's Island. I thought that was a little bit heavy metal for the kind of thing I'm doing.
    The Temagami region is one of North America's canoeing paradises.

    Why don't you just live in sin and get a canoe instead?

    Okay, now you may have crossed the line. Where's that ban hammer?


    Not really. I thought it was funny as hell.

    Bilby and I love kayaking and our kayaks actually come from the states.

    I miss quiet paddling up and down a calm river. I am hoping to get permission from the surgeon next year! It’s my biggest physical goal after all the damage to my knee.

    Well, at least you can't kick. (Sorry.)

    Well, if I did I could buy a canoe AND some whisky and still come out ahead. But then my partner wouldn't gain any street cred.
