Adirondack Guide Boats

Here's another relatively unknown boat type, the Adirondack Guide Boat
which as it's name suggests was used in the Adirondacks by sporting guides.
It's probably a regional adaptation of the canoe for carrying a greater load
and for use with oars for greater speed.  Either way they are beautiful little
boats and are still being made (though to the tune of $16,000 for a wooden
one)  Still if you are so inclined check it out.  Kits are available as well.
