    Default Port Chatham, Kenai Peninsula

    %

    Tossing a few into this thread for the fun of it, these are from a Hunting/Exploring trip with a new 14 ft. Mad River Explorer, my 8yr old learning the "Ropes, or is it Strokes" of Canoeing in Flat Calm June weather......
    in and around Port Chatham, off the southern coast of the Kenai Peninsula





    and we return to the big boat loaded with Black Bear, boat riding nice with weight and full of Joy of Success

    Ten Hours in that little raft off the AK peninsula, blowin' NW 60, in November.... "the Power of Life and Death is in the Tongue," and Yes, God is Good !

    Thought I'd toss a couple more Canoeing pics from the Western end of Kodiak, successfully hunting Blacktail Deer using the Canoe as a shore recon rig, it was blowing pretty hard but I was anchored with the big boat in a nicely protected bay.
    Still a bit hairy the next day going to shore when the return trip required heading to the boat with heavy wind (Gusty SW 35 knots)on the stern, something goes wrong and it would be a serious head wind return uphill to the boat.

    These pics were from a nicer day, calm to the boat but the next day...... Well I made it fine, thus am posting,
    These well built canoes are AWESOME %%

    Default Mad River to the Deer Mtns

    So here's a few more, in case some of you are not hunters, yeah I like to see live Deer also....

    this first is to stay legit in the Canoeing forum, then some scenery for Alaska lovers %



    Here's the results of the day after hunting when I toughed out some weather with the Mad River and found this band of brothers up on the ridge top,

    Get those boats out there.....









    PS so these unresized photos work for you folks? Let me know if they're too big,

    Awesome pictures man. Makes me wish I was there.

    very nice scott,
    if you do not mind,
    what did you canvas it with ?
    what will you use for finish on the canvas ?
    did you refinish the wood and what did you use on that ?
    nice work space, it looks like you might do that for a living ?
    thank you
