One Small Boat by David McCulloch
Our favorite small-boat builder, David McCulloch of Old Lyme, has brought in three of his hand-built boats. The 14-foot paddle canoe, designed by Jon Persson of Essex, weighs 39 pounds. The 12-foot kayak, with a heat-shrunk aircraft dacron cover, is David's own design and weighs just 20 pounds! Are they canoes or kayaks? Read David's answer click >> here.
