    Thought I'd add a what's-what to go with the video... it seemed too distracting to label the pictures... and I wasn't sure of everything and didn't want to offend anyone... so, if YOU recognize a boat or a person, step right up! Please add to this stuff-- canoe models, whatever!

    0:25-0:40 Morris/Kennebec restored by Richie Orris

    0:43-0:51 Linkanoe

    0:53-1:12 Vern Atwood's Model A type 1 B.N. Morris

    1:17-1:33 Peterborough

    1:35 Carleton (interesting deck!)

    1:51-1:58 Two by E.H. Gerrish

    2:01-2:12 Rushton

    2:13-2:30 Morris by Rollin Thurlow

    3:15-3:16 looks like a Dave DeVivo courting canoe

    Now...if only Assembly wasn't a 3 day drive each way, I'd be there!

    Distance no longer a problem

    I'll pick you up at the airport, flight should be much shorter than my drive next year...;)

    Great Time

    Wow! So many great sailing canoes!

    There was a point in time on Friday morning, just before the Sheriff showed up in his twin engine powerboat, when the lake was full of sails. A spectacular sight!

    Here are a few of my photos.

    That was Peter Mayer singing "Blue Boat Home" from the album "Earth Town Square"... I generally download tunes from Amazon, so only have that one tune from the album.

    Yes, we're still feeling very sorry for ourselves... there was no "upside" to having missed the Assembly.

    Need more pictures...

    Okay, I can't hold myself back.... I've made another video for YouTube, using some of the marvelous pictures posted here and some others that have been emailed to me... so FIRST-- if anyone who has posted here has a problem with them being part of a YouTube video, let me know... but then I'd need even more pictures... because my SECOND question involves whether or not anyone has any more pictures to share, especially of boats on the water... big sails a major plus! I have to fill the musical score... need like 4 more images.

    YouTube reaches all around the world and my hope is that we'll draw in more members and save more canoes.

    Thanks!
