After Lucian's and Stane one, this huge piece of wood touch the water! Kudos to all who was involved in work and organization! Wooden boat done by hand for 7 people is basically replica of the canoe from 1st century, founded in the Ljublanica river! Luc was found new friends and he was helping to bring the boat to the water! He get also the chance to row another full wood canoe done in the past from the same group!
