Edwin Tappan Adney's Model of a Beothuk Canoe

From Canoes: A Natural History in North America by Mark Neuzil and Norman Sims

Info

  • Edwin Tappan Adney's model of a Beothuk canoe illustrates the unique shape of the gunwales, rising amidships, which would permit the boat to be heeled at an extreme angle (as when hauling aboard game or large fish in coastal waters). A regularly designed canoe would swamp at such an angle. The Beothuk people lived in Newfoundland until the early nineteenth century.
