From the Author

On any given summer day, visitors to the Thousand Islands may see several attractive wooden boats involved in water sports, fishing, commuting and cruising. Nearly all of the region's classic boats are as attractive and vital now as during the era when they were new.

In this special region of the St Lawrence River, boating flourished like nowhere else on the continent. The river's deep, crystal clear water along with nearly two thousand islands created cozy passages, quiet channels and protected harbors that many boaters consider to be the world's most delightful cruising area. The Thousand Islands region is also the home of the world famous Antique Boat Museum with six of their prized boats featured in this book.

Here are the fascinating stories of forty-seven classic boats I have specifically selected for the book, as well as a review of the area's boating history. More than two hundred spectacular color photos, by award winning photographer, George Fischer, accompany the stories.
