Getting ready for another winter here in North Jersey. I put up a few new photos of boats in the shop like the rare 8 foot salesman display canoe on the table. She was restored in 1940 but we're going to restore her back to her original paint design of 1929. Was a busy summer, didn't get to the woodenboat show even, or out on the water enough. We plan on making the show in June 2019. Trying to keep the woodshed full. I love having the open shop but it's tough to heat. We can always fit in some repairs, but for full restorations or recanvasing canoes right now it's a 6 month waiting list.

a 1962 Fairey Marine Duckling. Taking out the centerboard and trunk and replacing it with a dagger board to allow for more room in the boat. Slicing a new keelson overlay on our new Laguna 14/12 bandsaw in the shop, to cover the center board slot.
