Stunning shots! Really enjoyed the pic with your gear. Fantastic contrast with the red canoe & the canvas pack...quite photogenic.

Wondering if you ended up using that interior canvas canoe liner you made and how practical it was with temporary ribs & velcro fasteners.

Great color... the sunset clouds especially seem to be in their natural tones.

Thanks Murat

Yes I did use the liner it worked out great, although I could make it smaller. I used 3 of the 4 ribs I made for it, one at front, one just in front of the seat to stop it from drooping while portaging and one at the back. You can see the temp ribs in the canoe in the last picture.

This canoe does not have a carrying yoke so I used a Tump that I rigged up from an old camera backpack shoulder strap. The front seat thwart rested on my trap muscles while the tump was used to hold the canoe from moving and stabilize it, worked amazing except for it needing to be readjusted every so often. I found it much more comfortable than just using a carrying yoke only.

I know you made or had one made out of leather, I was wonder if you make them I would to buy one from you. PM me if yes

Thanks
Jim
