Boat Building in Muskoka

Port Carling is one of the epicentres of fine boat building in the Muskoka lakes area, as this interesting local blog  elaborates. As I mentioned last week my partner, Rob, was doing some location scouting in the region some time back, for a TV series she was working on, one of the highlights of which – for me, anyway, as the spare part and photographer – was the time we spent with various boat-builders and canoe makers, talking about their craft, the history of the various styles and models and, most of all, simply eyeing and envying the beautiful vessels.

This first set of images is from Duke Boats in Port Carling, where we spent one wonderful morning. Other images will follow.
