A 67 Year Old Man build the Canvasback

My name is James H Sadler and as a teen I built the Canvasback Kayak.
My dad (Milon Willis Sadler) had this "Popular Mechanics or Science" mag with this article in it.
I launch the Kayak on the Pamlico River across from the wood shop that dad owned.
Now at 67 yrs/old with two grandsons living across the street from me, I'm going to make another kayak, but a wooden kayak for the two boys to use.
I'm setting here with tears running and the emotions flying all over the place remembering the youth of my life.
I grew up in Washington, NC on the Pamlico River.
Thank you for putting the article on line.
