I recently received this very interesting Email from a researcher from the V&A Museum in London.
Dear Mr Delorme
I am currently conducting research on behalf of the Victoria & Albert
Museum, London, for a forthcoming show slated for Sept 2011 about
skills and making. At this stage of our reseach, we would like to
inquire about the availability of one of your bespoke canoes found
Could you please let us know what the availability of the piece is --
is there one already built , for example. It would be great if you
could also share with us some basic object information such as
dimenions, materials used and weightage.
Many thanks for your help with this. Please do not hesitate to contact
me if you have any questions at this time.
The canoe in question is this one. I built it a few years ago now.
I hope something will come out of this.
