I posted in News Briefs two photos of a canoe wrapped around a rock just below Kettle Falls on the Sturgeon.

Does anyone know the owner or when it happened?

Possibly related to the missing ring?

Good thought, but no. I have been in touch with la-woman and she too saw the wrapper.

Hey hey now !

I am more into wrecked canoe salvage. I believe Brian stated this one was sheared in half so not worth investigating.

I learned my leason on the Petawawa River years ago, I don't go looking for white water but will try my hand at it if the opportunity arises and it appears somewhat safe. If the dog thinks it's cool then we might give it a go. lol

Alscool, you and Chris are not just canoe salvagers, but deep-salvage artists. No one better. And I did think of you almost immediately when I saw it, before I noticed the bow gone. It would have looked good hanging with the others in your wreck hall.
