Hi, DoryManThe louisiana boat in your blog is similar to a pirogue, but is referred to as a Rowing Skiff. The man pictured standing in the boat is Keith Felder from Denham Springs louisiana, who i think is still active in Louisiana Boat building. As far as the way the skiff is rowed here is a quote from Raymond Sedotol a boat builder from Pierre Part, Assumption Parish "A Cajun doesn't want to row backwards. He wants to know where he's going, not where he's been." Sincerely, Russell J Bland
Thank you, RussellKeith is indeed still active. I found his website:http://www.keithspirogues.com/homeI agree with Raymond's sentiment. Always better to look to the future, while remembering the past, so as to not make the same mistakes twice.
