It was really beat up when it came into the shop.
Fortunately we were able to restore the original shape of the hull which was altered due to poor storage.
I guess we owe a picture of the month for both December and January. How about some video footage instead?
The Chicot is favored by wilderness canoe trippers and general use paddlers all over. Here are 2 pictures of it in use up north on the Great Whale during an 8 week canoe trip. You can visit our website http://www.wood-canoe.com/ to find out more information on the Chicot and the 8 other canoe models we build. While we are on the topic of the Chicot, we have an order for one to be built as light as possible for an 80 day canoe trip. The target goal is a fraction under 60 pounds! This one is on the queue for next year and we certainly highlight this canoe as it is being built.
