Do you know what type of wood your canoe is constructed of and what part of the country do you reside in?

She may have seen some active duty between Puget sound and Alaska during the war (new machine guns are advised). Galley has refrigerator\icebox, microwave oven, stainless steel sink and portable propane stove. She is less adventurous than I and in this boat Ia€™m able to enjoy more time on the water in the wilds, with my wife. DIANNEa€™S ROSE has kept us dry in rain, cool under the hot sun, safe during storms and warm when the snow was on the river banks (we have a mini wood stove to warm the cabin, driftwood being plentiful)! This spring took forever to arrive and our first trip out on Georgian Bay (the Great Lakes) we helped break up the ice (see You Tube)!


Thanks to this unique boat Ia€™ve had my share of adventure and Dianne has been comfortable and safe even if Ia€™ve pushed my luck!I did just that last fall on an overnight trip on our local Nottawasaga River. Wanting to see the rivera€™s upper reaches where there is a large swamp, we (the boat and I) were happily boating between trees and bumping over submerged logs. The main stream of the river was running strong from recent rains, she questioned if we would be able to navigate it on the return trip, with the current pushing fast from our stern. Ia€™ll admit I did scrape a few more branches than I cared to and stressed Di more than I cared as well! On the up side, we found a beautiful nook to spend the night where we fished and enjoyed hot soup from our galley (Not even a bite!).
We woke relaxed with mist on the water and enjoyed a simple breakfast of toasted egg sandwiches as the sun burned the mist away.
On hot days we sit in the shade with windows and doors open, funneling cool breezes to our passengers. There was snow on the river banks on the last outing of last season and Ice still in the bay on our first outing of this season!
DIANNEa€™S ROSE is 17a€™ X 8a€™ beam and needs only 6a€? to float, making her perfect for sneaking into shallow coves (swamps) and pulling up to isolated beaches. The boat has a refined barge hull with the sides having a slight a€?Va€?, providing the extreme shallow draw and the accommodations for our comfort. We can easily find shelter from wind and waves as we did on another trip during a severe thunderstorm.
Tucked well up a creek, thanks to our shallow draw, we enjoyed the sound of the heavy rain without a care!
Others anchored in a reasonably sheltered bay that our creek fed were tossed about all night. This hull shape has surprised many as being quite sea worthy, not limiting our adventures to just protected waters!


The next morning we were the rare boat out in choppy waters (others may have been catching up on their sleep?)! Confidence in such conditions come from a high freeboard, a cabin that can be secured tight, a strongly built hull with divided compartments and a boat with positive buoyancy. Not being overpowered we dona€™t run on top of waves, slamming as we go, but ride in the water as a displacement hull does! I tested her in 3-4a€™ braking waves (not my wife, just the boat), she performed well, light enough to rise over large waves but heavy enough to punch through smaller chop.
Of course using good judgement is part of good seamanship, I intend to use her mostly on good weather days but I want confidence in case the weather turns!
Another unforeseen advantage is being able to launch off less than perfect sites, as is often the case in the wilder places we enjoy. It rained for most of the first day but we were completely comfortable inside, opening the rear windows for just the right air flow. Later that day we navigated down a long narrow channel (Lost Channela€¦ really!), we slipped over submerged logs and rocks, settling into a wild lagoon for our first night on board. The bugs were horrible but with screens in place, we paid little attention to our pesky neighbours and enjoyed a dry retreat. Two couches, 62a€? long, face each other and serves as lounge, drivera€™s seat, dinning and sleeping areas.
These boards transform into dining table, additional seats, storage shelves (under the deck) and into the steps in and out of the cabin.
