The beautiful grain of the Douglas Fir can be seen in this view from the bow of the canoe. The bailing paddle is also hand-made, but was only required for the naming ceremony.
Dugout canoe launch
During a residency along the Dee estuary, Clinton Chaloner, artist and wood sculptor LinkExternal link , has created A dugout canoe as part of an Art in Nature scheme. The canoe is made from a Douglas Fir tree donated by a local farmer. There is a long history of boat and ship building along the banks of the Dee, but that has long-since died out. The creation of this canoe reflects the area's historic shipbuilding tradition. LinkExternal link The project is co-funded by the Arts Council of Wales.
