Historic Paddle Photo: Admiral Digby Museum Collection

A photograph in the graphic collections of the Admiral Digby Museum in Nova Scotia features a paddler about to embark in his canoe. The closed gunnel canvas canoe is a real beauty. Likewise, the paddle has pretty shape with a simple flattened grip.

The problem with me is I have lots of time but no money... I'm building my shop this year and that cost a faire a bit... And I'm not bringing in much these days!! I really know hat I want, I wouldn't be able to find one used so it will have to be new... and that is not cheap haha...
