For over 150 years, the Adirondack Guideboat has been regarded as the highest example of the boat-builder’s art. A fishing boat, a hunting boat, a hauling boat; it was a boat a man could carry for a mile or row for a week. Over time, the boats evolved becoming lighter, faster, prettier, and easier to row. Professional guides were pursuing game, but they were also pursuing customers. The stories a guide might tell, the game or fish his “sport” might bag, the meal he might cook, they were all part of what brought the sport back year after year. The beauty and grace of the guide’s boat was also part of the wilderness experience. The Adirondack Guideboat influenced commerce, culture and developed rowing sport in the Lake Region of New York’s Adirondack Mountains. The boat was built with local pine, spruce and cedar and 8,000 tiny tacks and screws. Guideboats flourished for 60 years with a peak in the 1880s and 1890s. With the advent of the automobile and access roads, the Guideboat was no longer needed for regional transportation. But the design of the boat was held in high esteem and the Guideboat found a new position in recreational rowing.
