Old Timey Ad: St. Lawrence River Skiff, Canoe, and Steam Launch Company
From Forest and Stream, June 30, 1894. The La Gloria model is what "small boat" sailing was considered back then. (There was also the "canoemen" with their tiny cockleshells and piles of canvas - but they were a special breed - still are.)
Bald but my eyebrows are growing at a prolific rate. Sailed Windmills and Y-Flyers in the 1960's. Founded Miami University (OH) sailing team. Sailed International 14's and Lasers in the 1970's. Sailed International Canoes in the 1980's to mid 1990's. Sailed Classic Moths since 2002. Enjoy boatbuilding though I'm very, very slow at it (the Internet doesn't help matters). Name in real life: Rod Mincher
After choosing this username (Tweezer is the name of my Classic Moth), further research on the Internet turned up that Tweezerman is a corporate name for a line of pedicure products. Let me emphasize that I do not work for, nor endorse these products.
