When I made my Kite I put about a 3" high seat in it that is mounted to the bottom, though that canoe is designed for a high seat mounted to the gunwales. Since I am 7 feet tall this allows my head...

I wasn't involved in the paddling side of things in 2010, but I read the trip report and looked at the pictures sometime after the fact and it certainly left an impression in my mind. Whenever I get...

We've got 39 taps out and have made 6 gallons so far, I'm hoping to get another boil this week. Sugar content in the sap has been really low this year, so it's been more boiling for less syrup but...
