🛶 Storing your Boat for the winter, 18th Century Style
« on: June 12, 2019, 03:48:17 PM »
Townsend is BACK FROM THE PAST once again from the 18th Century, this time with critical information on how to store your boat for the winter, the old fashion way.

Just to make sure it doesn't get waterlogged, it might be a good idea to coat it in tallow or pine tar before sinking it.  Generally speaking though, I think the Birchbark Canoes built on a frame are more elegant than Dugouts (and lighter too!), and even better are the Sealskin Kayaks built on a frame of Whale Bone by the Inuit and Aleut.


He's still using the Mr. Fusion powered Flying Delorean, hasn't tried the WAYBAC Machine or Time Tunnel yet.
