Apparently the event included Ray tackling Class II rapids on the French River in birchbark canoe. with a helicopter overhead documenting the footage. Gotta see that! Also couldn't help but notice that the sheerline and ends on Ray's bark canoe resemble my yet incomplete Attikamek Hunter's canoe.
The Canadian Canoe Museum's 36' Canot du Maitre built by Manager Artisan Jeremy Ward was also part of the filming. Jeremy and the Museum's set of modern day Voyageurs look absolutely perfect in the Upper French's calm waters. I can't wait to see this TV series from Ray apparently due out in about 1 year.
