fell in love with the Adirondacks while on a family camping trips there
thirty years ago. Fascinated by Adirondack watercraft, especially the
Adirondack guideboat he determined to build his own. His quest led him
to old time guideboat builders, the Adirondack Museum, and finally to
those who knew the romantic history of the classic guideboat he replicated.
As a docent at the Adirondack museum he learned that others, like himself,
yearned to build a guideboat. He called on his engineering background
and technical writing skills to provide manuals for building a traditional
Adirondack guideboat and guideboat paddle. Gordon and His wife Fran
own a camp on Long Lake.
