William Alden and Shadow

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

  • Shadow was a dual-purpose paddling/sailing canoe from the years before racing produced more specialized craft. She had only a shallow external keel and lacked the centerboards and elaborate hardware of true sailing canoes such as Vesper or Nautilus.
