Today Rollin is working on the old courting canoe. I am working on the dinghy in the middle. Niether of us has gummed up the courage to start on the lapstrake. Rollin has glued up the deadwood and it needs to be shaped and reinstalled.
For now, he is working on the deck framing and coamings in the courting canoe. I am installing pieces that have to go in before the canvas goes on.
Welcome to the Blog of the Northwoods Canoe Web Cam. Located in Atkinson, Maine, we have been custom building new and restoring wooden boats and canoes for over 30 years. We specialize in wood and canvas canoe construction but we also work on a wide selection of wooden boats. In addition to the work on the boats and canoes we offer a wide range of specialized canoe material to those working on their own boat. Private classes are offered to those that want to come to the shop and build their own wooden canoe.
The web cam in the shop is very recent and we are still in the experimental stage with it.
