World's Largest Wood-Canvas Canoe Fleets 

The closest I could come to a wood-canvas canoe association was the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association. There I started and expanded outward. I surveyed every canoe builder I could find and got responses from 51. These were, in fact, my best sources. I scoured the Internet. I sent emails that resulted in waves of responses as my messages were forwarded to friends. I tried prominent individuals like Benson Gray, Kirk Wipper, James Raffan, Craig Macdonald, Becky Mason, Ralph Frese, Bruce Hodgins and others, and authors like Sue Audette, Jerry Stelmok and others. I asked everyone for leads, tips and hunches, including all the camps on the list. I followed up on every suggestion.  Each institution on the list was individually contacted and provided the data used in the list. The following associations were contacted during the search:
