Besame

Originally launched June 25, 2005, this Cosine Wherry needed a refresh. The sliding seat was removed and a more traditional interior was installed this summer. Two cedar strip buoyancy tanks were added, along with many coats of varnish and new oars from Barkley Sound Oar & Paddle. My sons and I headed out fishing on re-launch day at Traver’s Reservoir, Alberta on the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend.
