Lapstrake Planking

Fitting the edge of the garboard plank to the keel rabbet.

Ah, the full length planking fetish that has plagued many.  As nice as full length strakes are it is not always practical or even reasonable to use such stock.  Here is a scarf being cut.

Picture of the Month

Each month we will try to post a picture of the month.  This one comes from our shop last week. Shown below is the fit of a newly made inner keel for a Rushton rowboat that is currently in the shop for restoration.  This was the test fit as it came of the workbench.

Welcome to the official blog of Salmon Falls Canoe. This blog will be written in conjunction with the Shop Talk page on our website.  Here at the blog you will find fresh up to date information about Salmon Falls Canoe and what's going on in the shop among other things.  If you enjoy traditionally built wooden canoes and boats and want to look at pictures and read all things concerning the like, you're at the right place.  From canoe tripping in the wilderness to construction and building, restoration, and historical commentary, everyone from the craziest aficionados to the average canoeist will find something interesting.

Without further adieu, here's a picture from the other week in the shop.  Like the blog, this picture shows something new that we are up to. If you're curious and want to find out more on this new project, I guess you'll have to keep reading the blog......
