Dennis Marshall wrote, “I am the proud owner of one of your dad’s canoes. I bought it at a garage sale from Don Harrison, here on Saltspring Island. He is a big man, a hunter who would head into northern B.C. with one or two others from our local rod and gun club, with this 1951 canoe, which he proudly informed me would easily carry half a moose and two paddlers. Don was the local butcher here for years. I bought the canoe from him about 20 years ago. It was professionally fibreglassed in 1959 I was told. It has held up well. We have used the canoe on the Bowron Lakes and, of course, all around the Gulf Islands and Tofino. We feel like we are in good hands when paddling this favorite of our watercraft.
