    one who knows how to have sex in a canoe

    not to further derail the amish rob thread

    vintage canadian 'courting canoe' or in america referred to as a 'spooning canoe'

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    A bit of a tangent:
    More than likely that photo was taken on the Charles River in Mass.
    In fact I believe that is an Old Town "Charles River" canoe (John Fitzgerald(Fitz) would know for certain).
    It was quite the evening event to go canoeing on the Charles.
    There were restaurants and Dance Halls all along the river catering to the Canoe Craze.
    There was a Manufacturer in Newton, The Robertson Canoe Company, that built canoes and also Body components for the Stanley Steamer.
    They Built the body for the "World's Fastest Canoe". Which I believe reached speeds of 100mph on Daytona Beach before crashing.

    I used to teach canoeing to the kids at the Carroll Center the Blind from here:

    I believe it is the last non-collegiate boat house on the river. ( Fitz will know for certain).

    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    Don't think so, Paul. The painting is by Frances Anne (Hopkins) Beechy and her biography states that, "The travels which most influenced her painting were tours with her husband by large fur-trade canoes on the upper Great Lakes and the Mattawa (Ont.) and Ottawa rivers in 1864, 1866, and 1869." It gives no mention of her travelling into the USA, although she probably transited along the northern shores of Lake Michigan on her way to the Red River HBC station in what is now Winnipeg.
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    Define Canadian ?

    From an outsider looking in, a people who have a PM who sails effortlessly through diverse cultural settings besides having ministers in his government who are not Canadian-born :

    I stand corrected, Hugh. The written 'mini-biography' I found made no mention of visiting the southern shores of the lakes. Your google-fu is better...
