Canoes and canoeing are Ken’s passion. If he’s not building canoes for the local Kiwanis club, he’s paddling them in the Quetico. Ken first learned to build canoes in 1968 and has added over 75 new projects to his list since then. As a former student at the Wooden Boat School in Brooklin, Maine, Ken keeps refining the cedar strip construction technique—the chevron has become his trademark. Recently, Ken was invited to teach a woodstrip building class in Norway.
