    My buddy Scott Ouderkirk has been doing a series of videos for the Antique Boat Museum this spring. The ABM, like many museums, is currently closed and not certain when they may open again, or whether the Annual Boat Show can be held (as of today, they are still taking registrations).

    Today's episode features the canoe and small craft exhibits, including "The Perfect Canoe," "St. Lawrence Skiffs," and "Oar Else." These are exhibits that I mounted while working at the ABM.

    See how many canoes you can identify! I'll be happy to id any if you post the time mark on the video on this thread.
