    A TIME FOR REJUVENATION: Ferdy Goode paddles past in his 15 foot Wabanaki-style birch bark canoe with hand-carved black spruce paddle. Just one of many of the birch barks that Ferdy has built as owner/builder at Beaver Bark Canoes. A beautiful morning at the Great Rivers Chapter’s 2015 Jag Lake gathering near Boulder Junction, WI.

    A PRESIDENTIAL CANOE: The very nice restoration of this 1922 St. Lawrence Boat Works 16 foot ‘Whistle Wing’ canoe was done by Jody Bronson and Frank Christinat, and Jody presented it to his wife Jean as a Valentine’s Day present. The canoe was formerly owned by U.S. Senator Fredric C. Walcott of Norfolk, Connecticut, who once paddled in this very canoe with President Herbert Hoover on Tobey Pond. #wcha #wchaorg #canoe #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodencanoe #stlawrenceboatworks #greatmountainforest

    MORNING PADDLE: Early on a misty morning, on Otsego Lake, near Cooperstown, NY, near the headwaters of the Susquehanna River. Member Scottie Baker got this shot as she paddled her circa 1898, 15-foot cedar canoe. “Pause” was built by Wilbur & Wheelock, of Clayton, New York, and weighs a mere 39 pounds! Photo credit: Natura Productions 2004; Scottie Baker with Jeff Reynolds and Peter Johngren. #wcha #wchaorg #canoe #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodencanoe #otsegolake #wilburandwheelock

    CEDAR ELEGANCE: A stunning, mint-condition, completely original Willits Brothers sailing canoe named Vermilion. Willits Brothers canoes are uniquely constructed with a double-cedar hull; this one has mahogany gunwales, thwarts, seats and decks, along with white oak decks, king planks and outside stems. A beautiful canoe! Photo by Michael Grace. #wcha #wchaorg #canoe #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodencanoe #willitscanoe

    READY TO GO: Bill Conrad’s B.N. Morris canoe on Chapel Pond in the Adirondack Mountains of New York state in the summer of 2002. This is a 16 foot, Model A, Type 1 Morris, serial number 4052, circa 1906. The paint scheme was taken from the 1919 Morris catalog cover.

    CELEBRATING THE FOURTH: What better way to celebrate July 4th than with red, white and blue canoes? The blue one is a circa 1905 B. N. Morris that belonged to owner Don Derrick’s grandfather. Don took the lines off it and built the other two, as wedding presents for his sons. What could be a better wedding gift?

    “ELIZABETH”: Member Chris Pearson lovingly restored this 1903 E.M.White, and is able to trace its pedigree back to a descendant of the original owner. A period E.M.White catalog lists it as a 16-foot “Regular” model. The Native American syllabics are in Cree, and translate to Elizabeth (Chris’ niece), to whom he dedicated the restoration. The photo was taken on its maiden, post-restoration voyage on Barnum Pond, in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State. #wcha #wchaorg #canoe #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodencanoe #whitecanoe #barnumpond #adirondacks

    PURE SERENITY: A rare turn of the century Whitney canoe restored by Ralph Nimtz. The rounded stern seat that is mortised into the gunwales and hung on brass plates at the rear and narrow decks with extended gunwales along with the closed gunwales make this quite a handsome boat.
