I’ve always had a passion for building boats, maybe it’s from floating popsicle sticks down the street gutter when I was a kid. My grandpa built a fishing boat in 1957. I’m fortunate to have a picture of him holding the days catch with his project. Last summer when visiting my uncle in Winnipeg, I discovered he had made and sold a couple wooden boats back in the Fifties. This year during spare time I’ve mastered building a cedar strip touring sea kayak that’ll be ready to launch this summer.
