Decked Sailing Canoe

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

  • This 14-foot canoe is similar to MacGregor’s Rob Roy, with an all-wood lapstrake hull, pin-and-lateen sail rig, and watertight cargo hatch. It may have been built by J. H. Rushton, or it may have simply used Rushton hardware.
