Yeah. Make my own bow. "The Indians did it."
That's the phrase that launched a paddle in a canoe from Long Beach to Cat Island, Ms. It's a fricken wonder we weren't washed out into the truly open gulf or flipped over and drowned. The Coast Guard asked us what happened to our boat. They though surely we had sunk a larger sailing vessel and were self rescuing.
I did read however that bois d'arc, horse apple, is also a good wood. We have those around me.
Any tips on this make your own bow idea?
