    Default Canoe in the NWT

    Some of our pictures from the NWT in a Scott Freighter. Thought folks might be interested. Enjoy.

    Thanks for the photos...looks like a great family boat.

    I liked the ones at the end on the Mackenzie Delta.

    I really like the boat and the country. Our 20HP Honda 4 Stroke isn't too shabby either.

    Thanks..it might be a bit long for non-family members. Lots of pictures of the kids and I left out the hunting shots as it was made for the family and some of my wife's relatives are vegetarians. The country is good though and the HB freighter is a real great craft. I need to get spray rails on mine though as a spray at -20C is a bit tiresome.

    This is one of my favourite you tube videos. It is set in Alaska and features an aluminum freighter, moose, and a fish wheel. Lovely minimalist editing. Don't know the fellows but it's first rate.

    Default video

    Great video. A couple of questions:
    - what's the single metal hoop over the top of the canoe for?
    - what kind of tent is that near the end of the video.

    Thanks:

    The hoop is for clipping a tarp to to get the kids out of the rain. A fiberglass rod is pressed in to two oar locks to make the hoop.

    The tent at the end is an Arctic Oven Pup Tent. Great for North of the Treeline. Heats up with a lantern even at -40.
