INelsonBrownsmallntrigued by the story of Henry Rushton and his double paddle canoes, Stan decided to build one. He ended up building five. Here is a picture of the Nelson Brown, the first boat in the Rushton reproduction series built by Stan Hunter starting in 1986. The owner has moved from his cottage and is reluctantly offering the Nelson Brown for sale.

Overheard in the boat shop: “There’s not much a great deal of patience, vision (and a cheque!) can’t cure.”
