Ken has been obsessed with paper boats since an article in The Small Boat Journal caught his attention In the 1980's. It was about Jack Hazzard who had built a paper canoe, using brown paper and glue. With a little research he quickly discovered that the leading (and almost only) 19th century paper boat firm of Waters & Sons had been located in Troy, NY.
If you have any information on the Waters family or paper boat making, or if you'd like a bit more information he'd be happy to provide it. You can email him at "paperweb" (at) "cupery (dot) net".
