June 23 rd
Well time slips by again here we are at the summer solstice. "Wintas comin" More importantly the Autumn comes first time to fish the west branch, and enjoy crisp cool nights. Rollin, Elisa and Steve have been busy in the shop. I come in now and then to disrupt the lot. They have completed the big Voyager. Another two restorations, the last in a string of canoes for a guy in Atlanta, Ga. There was a Penn Yann Swift and a bunch of other assorted restorations. More than a few new canoes including a 9 1/2 foot pack canoe and the Allagash Wilderness Waterway 50th Anniversary Atkinson Traveler, a new Morris and currently working on a 15' Cheemaun. As usual there is ten or more canoes in progress from sponsons to Cheemans going on as we speak and our students plank a way at their deep traveler.
We all spent some time out of the shop I spent a five days up on Churchill in the Allagash snifing out spring Brookies. Rollin, Elisa, her brother, and another friend of hers, spent a week on the Allagash. They went from Eagle Lake to the village of Allagash.
Currently there are two gentle men in the shop building a Extra Deep, Atkinson Traveler. Alan and Jim have been here before with their friend Roger. They're building the canoe as a wedding present for Jim's son.
