Richard Honan has been hard at work all winter long in his boat building workshop (a TotalBoat Shop!) building this beautiful Adirondack Guide Boat. We have been following his build and have a page dedicated to Richard’s latest masterpiece building endeavor here.
We are so proud of Richard and his hard work and hope you will check out the full gallery of photos and his updates on our TotalBoat Shop page and here.
His update – sent Sunday evening – presumably after a tiring but exhilarating day, was as follows:
RH: What a wonderful day yesterday at the Essex River Row, six mile race starting across from Woodman’s Seafood Restaurant, down the Essex River, to the back side of Cranes Beach and then back up the river to the finish line. It was extra special because after six months of constructing of my Adirondack Guide Boat, this was the baptism, the first day in the water. Joining me on the water were my brother Bill Honan and nephew Matthew W Honan rowing in my 15’00” Duck Trap Wherry, the “William & Anthony”.
