Luke McNair's Wabanaki Style Canoe

Here's a wonderful update from skilled craftsman Luke McNair. Back in 2015, Luke was ambitiously building a Wabanaki style canoe using canvas as a substitute for birchbark (see full post HERE).

Well the canoe has been completed for a while now and put through some rigorous testing, including some coastal ocean paddling, river poling and even a white water race course. Luke was kind enough to send in some photos of his unique canoe in action...

Wow. Such inspirational stuff! It also seems a canoe building addiction might have begun as Luke is planning construction of another boat very soon. Looking forward to hearing all about it.
