Johncanoe - Launch Day

This is a photo album of Johncanoe's launch day. Launch took place at the Bladensburg Marina on the Anacostia River on Saturday July 6th, 2002. As builder I had the honor of launching the boat and the first ride. After my ride, my wife also took the boat for a test ride. When the solo test rides were done, we took a dual shakedown cruise down the Anacostia River. Click on pictures to see larger images.
