Canoe was drawn for on Saturday and the winner is Ruth Pezzack of Peterborough.

She is apparently picking her prize up today at the Canoe Museum. If I get access to a pic I will post it.

Five Rangers in a row

Post by kanoottiveljet » Wed Mar 24, 2010 3:47 am

Greetings from Ylivieska, Finland!
Take a look at our ongoing canoebuildin blog at http://www.kanoottiveljet.fi/
Four guys and five Prospector Rangers underway (one for the sponsor) We strive to be ready at middle of june. to be seen... We have lofted canoes from the Canoecraft. Main wood is WRC and ash for stems and out- and inwales. We have also some mahogany and aspen accentstrips.

Language may be hard to understand but photos are easy to digest :wink

edit. If you still want to understand what we are writing, here is a hilarious translation :twisted evil

New Ranger Build

Post by Denis » Wed Jun 16, 2010 7:53 pm

Started another Ranger for another Raffle. this time proceeds go to the Lakefield Trail for improvements etc.

Building in an old barn just outside of the village. Kinda feels like working in an old canoe barn building a new way lol. Noisy tho with the chickens ducks goats and pigs just outside the window. Don't need a radio on.

Send money Glen I know you want it lol If you win I'll deliver it after I use it all summer lol

Denis

ps just wetting it out again after sanding with 120 grit.

Hi Glen:

Haven't seen the tickets yet but I think they will be 10 bucks with 1000 tickets will let you know when I see them.

We did a 180- grit sanding today and I must say it looks very worthwhile to go to 180 grit prior to glassing. Only a tiny bit of filling to do. Ron's new cutter heads make a really nice job of milling the strips. they go together very nicely

We hope to Glass on Tuesday coming. Same day as Ted launches his new craft.

Raffle winner

Post by Denis » Sat Nov 13, 2010 12:47 pm

The Ranger canoe was drawn for last evening and the winner is Sandy McNeil of the Buckhorn area which is just north of Peterborough.

Sorry Glen your ticket didn't get it.

All of the tickets were sold raising almost $8,000 dollars for the Trail committee to use for improvements to the trail within the Village of Lakefield.

Hi to everyone

Im new to the Strip building scene, I purchased a 15' Ranger kit recently and had it shipped over to the UK, "Phew" that took some doing ££££££££. I have just finished my strongback and forms, just steamed the stems and all looks well so far.

Hope to touch base with some of you.

Regards Roscoe
