It is Mac's mission to open your eyes to the natural beauty around you. He does so by providing this "course" to create and use an ideal double-paddle canoe. It's strip-built, over molds. And, the book includes drawings and mold dimensions, so you can truly build right from the book. In addition to building the hull, he shows you how to make a caned seat, as well as an elegant double-paddle. 

Mac taught at our WoodenBoat School for many years. He would carry his canoe atop his minivan, and travel from Florida up to Maine at a leisurely pace, stopping off at lakes, swamps, and ponds to do a little exploring. He mentioned that he was at a pond in Penobscot (a pond that isn't the easiest to find entry to...) when another paddler recognized his boat / bright yellow hat, and shouted "HEY MAC". He didn't know the person, but they knew of him. Sweet guy.
