    Great video-- I watched all 7 days-- Love how they accepted the storm as part of the canoe's history.

    Hey Ferdy,

    You've done it again! This is the best thing I've ever seen on building those magnificent craft. Getting to see William Comanda in the video is a great plus.
    Thanks so much!!!!

    Thanks beaver just about to finish "BB Canoe", 'Living with the Algonquin' by David Gidmark.

    Reading about building and watching are two different things.

    This is an excellent website including photos of the largest canoe built in Golden Lake by Matt Bernard.

    "While the tradition of birch bark canoe building may be fading into history, some of this legacy is retained in modern cedar strip and canvas copies. What ever romantic name modern companies give their models, Ojibway and Algonquin Indian were their original authors"
