Another Chum, Omer Stringers signature Chestnut

Not quite the whole story - abbreviated short from the company website.

The logo, as kool today as it was when it came out.

The Man himself.

The story below, along with images appears on the Carrying Place Canoe & Boat Works site, and is a more complete biography of the man.

A nice original Chum we bought almost in our own backyard

No restoration work done, a nice example

Typical Chestnut details

Fine lines

Good solid ends

Arriving home, waiting to be done. We've done Chums before, but this one will be done up as a replica of Omers boat.
