    Dr. Fisher, I am preparing to paint , from an old photo, my grandfather sitting on his slip on Little Moose Lake, net to his guide boat. Since the reference is very poor, I am looking for images of guide boats on slips. The boat was a traditional black with green interior, probably 14′. I would be most appreciative if you had images that you are willing to share. Best, Wyncia Clute, Boulder, Coloroado

    • Wyncia:

      I will search the books I have that may contain the image you are looking for. They are my own book “Tale of an Historic Adirondack Guideboat…, Haley Bond’s book Boats and Boating in the Adirondacks, and the Durant’s book The Adirondack Guide-boat. Most photos I have seen are of guideboats on open water. I’ll email you whatever I find.

      Good luck on your painting project. I am sure your grandfather will be pleased.

    I am having a tough time on finding a book on building a adirondack guideboat. any thoughts? thanks, Bill Martin

    • Bill:

      You have come to the right place. I wrote one called “Tale of an Historic Guideboat and How to Build One”. It is step by step guide on how to build a traditional guideboat. I also have plans for the ribs and stems of the boat I build. You can order both from my website at www. Adirondack-guideboat.com.

      There is another book by John Michne that describes how to build a strip-built guideboat of the Grant design.

      All the best,

      Gordon
