Title: Let's see some wooden beauties.
Post by: xj35s on July 25, 2015, 09:44:09 AM
I went to the 50 mile route 90 garage sales. I found this very nice touring canoe. $950. I would have thrown the cash if I had it. It has storage under the seats. Lets use this thread for showing off woodies.

This double paddle was homemade. Very nice fat handle

I missed the rt 90 sale this year. I didn't realize it was this past weekend until late Sunday.
Anyway here's my wood canoe

Really nice lines. I bet she's fast on the water too.

Spyder, Looks heavy, is it?  I bet it'll carry a decent load with stability.
