Was a tough winter here in the north east. Though no lack of work. It was like an explosion of square sterns here this past winter. A lot of big boats, some Old Towns and some restorations of Schuyler Thomson built boats. Always a mix. After canvasing four square sterns and refinishing them still no rest. Working on two 25 foot war canoes at the moment to get them done for summer. Was tired of feeding the wood stove in the shop nice to have better weather. Though I do love the snow.
