The Science of Canoeing – Strength Magazine – September, 1926

Of ALL the primitive implements o£ the Indian, none has survived civilization in a recognizable form except his canoe. The test of time and man’s ingenuity have found no suitable substitute for his water craft, be it for pleasure or for service on stream, river, lake or ocean bay. With the possible exception of a few improvements in construction, fundamentally the canoe has remained unchanged. The canoe· is especially attractive because of its lightness (rendering portage less toilsome), its ease of propulsion, and (for the aesthetic) its grace on the water.
