BIJABOJI is the dugout canoe rowed by Betty Lowman from Guemes Channel in Anacortes, WA to Ketchikan, Alaska during her 66-day solo adventure in 1937. It's red hull is 13' 10" long. It was hand-carved by Native artisan George Gibbs in 1930. The name on the bow was added by Neil Carey, who also glassed the hull. The seat is not the original. The oars and oarlocks did not come to the museum with the canoe. The oak ribs orginally installed by Bill Lowman were replaced by Neil with cedar ribs. Her book "North to Alaska by Oar, BIJABOJI", written by Betty Lowman Carey and edited by Neil G. Carey in 2004, can be found in the Museum research library.
