Rowing in British Columbia

Erik Lyon, artist, emailed to say he likes the blog, which was nice of him, and to draw attention to this nice skin-on-frame rowboat with a crazy windsurfer mast and thole pins that seem to be recycled watzits (or perhaps summats).
The boat is called Fog Ducker, and frankly I don't want to know where that name came from. It seems to be one of those boats that have a wanderlust - she slipped her leash under tow near Vancouver, then ran away with thieves and finally disappeared with a marine policeman. Disloyal, Erik calls it, but he also says she was "the best rowboat a guy could ever ask for."
Now she is no more - the full story is at Erik's blog, Raccoon Mask.
