Ken Kelly is a Grand Rapids, Michigan wine dealer and Canoe Casanova, who has the world’s largest and finest collection of magnificent wooden courting canoes.
Kelly’s canoes date back to an era when designers built them for style and romance, a time when couples would go down to the river for a little moonlight smooching. That became such a popular way to court your gal that local communities began to pass ordinances to restrict behavior on the water and hired constables to patrol local park ponds.
