Voyageur Class

Voyageur Colter's Run

Designed by: Joseph Ringling
Built by: Joseph Ringling, Larry Hassel, Rami Ringling, Ian Miller, Theresa Miller, Sylvia Keller
Completed on July 4th, 2011

This is a handmade canoe built by a world record holding team. I haven't seen it in person yet, but from what I understand, this picture had to be taken of the front third of the boat. Fully loaded it has 14 people on board! It is 31 feet long and was named after John Colter, a member of the Lewis and Clark crew.

It will be competing in the Race for the Rivers next Saturday.

What an amazing DIY project.
