Thread: 17' Chestnut Sailing Canoe

    Default 17' Chestnut Sailing Canoe

    I recently came across a 17' Chestnut Sailing canoe. It has most of rigging with it but no actual sail with it. I am hoping to find some original diagrams of the canoe with all of the rigging. I have looked aroud the web and have not been able to find out anything yet. Does anyone know where I could find this info??

    You could try Dan Millar at Dragonfly Canoe Works. http://dragonflycanoe.com/about/
    I dont know him personally but he seems to know a lot about early canoes, especially sailing canoes.
