This photo was taken on launching day for the new cedar strip canoe that I'm calling the "Mystic River Tandem". It still needs some more sanding and several coats of varnish, but it is all built and ready to go.

For those of you who just can't have too many sources of hand made boat stuff coming into your smart phones and have a softspot in your heart for lo fidelity images that look like they were taken with a Polaroid and stuck to the fridge for 35 years; I've started posting the occasional photo on Instagram. The subject matter will tend to be related to boat building, woodworking, using wooden boats etc. We'll see what develops.

This build is not going to go too fast as I need to take photographs along the way so we can work up instruction manuals for each of the boats. So far this has involved taking an average of 100 photographs a day. I must say it is a lot faster to build a boat if you don't have to set up a camera and lights every few minutes.

The Maine Boats Homes and Harbors Show in Rockland Maine is a great gathering of all kinds of creative people. From builders of large yachts to crafters of fine jewelry, deisel engines to hammocks, this show has something for everyone. I always enjoy showing my boats to the people who visit this show. They are knowledgable and curious. It is worth a trip to Maine to see this part of the coast and take in some beautiful boats.
