High tech, low tech. Book as mousepad while working. I’d rather be paddling.

Although, frankly, there aren’t many times I wouldn’t rather be paddling.

The book is The Wood and Canvas Canoe: A Complete Guide to its History, Construction, Restoration, and Maintenance, by Jerry Steelmok and Rollin Thurlow. With names like that, you KNOW they’re authorities. On ANY subject.

And hey, if Amazon’s listing is to be believed, it’s something of a pricey item, or a rarity at this point. It really is spectacular. I got it while clearing out part of my late grandfather’s office. I imagine this is what taught him to recanvas canoes when we did it when I was younger.

I think I’ll respect this book a little better now that I think about it.
