The Pirogue Maker

A great film from 1949 showing for the first time and possibly the last time ever, that a Traditional, Hand-Made, Louisianan Pirogue was crafted from an 800lb. cedar log.

The Boyne Currach - 1935 Film

A great early film by Frank Stevens - the narration... and YouTube are modern but the Currach and construction are totally classic. I've always been a fan of Timothy Severin's "The Brendan Voyage" - and this little film feels right at home.

Cherry Fins!

The latest from John Cherry. I have never seen Tatoo designs on fins before this. I really love the fact that the designs were burned in and then watercolored. Huzzah!
