Re: First boat advice - Mpls to Great Lakes

One of the really nice things about Mille Lacs That is different then the lakes around the Cities is to put the boat on a single tack and go for a couple of hours. Try that on Hiawatha.:)

Re: Bill Healy wooden boat

DeniseO30,
Beautiful work.

Canoes are fun to build. They don't take long and are relatively inexpensive :D.

Re: Embedded Chain plate maint/replacement

This is a little of the basic thread but,
