I had stopped for lunch at the Rideau canal locks and up comes this steamboat. So I see the engine and it seems to be hand made and I ask if he made it himself. He says no he got it from a guy in New Hampshire. I asked if it was Vern Leduc and he looked very surprised and said yes. Considering I was from NJ and this fellow (Guy was his name) was from Ottawa it was rather surprising.
