Peasemarsh 8
The Peasemarsh 8 is an easy to build canoe 8'  at 7' - 7" (2.31m) long and 2' - 2" wide at it's widest point which will take a paddler weighing up to 11st (70kg). It takes around 20hrs to build from the full kit. What makes this an easy build is that the individual hull panels are supplied in one piece so you can have the hull stitched together and the first stage of the gluing done on the same day you receive it. Once on the water it's a great little fun canoe.

A great project for 2 adults to build and get out on the water after around 30hrs to build time from the full kit. Ideal for a day out on the water or a camping trip. It goes together easily with a simple plank joining method to get the length you need.

Dengemarsh 10
Length 10' - 0" (3.048m)    Beam 2' - 9" (0.813m)    Depth (midships) 1' - 0" (0.305m)    Height fwd/aft 1' - 7" (0.483m) Dry Weight (approx.) 38bs (17kgs)    Crew 1 Adult or 2 Children  
The Dengemarsh canoe is based on the Peasemarsh but with an extra plank which makes for a slightly rounder hull. An open “Canadian” style canoe along the lines of the Peasemarsh design but with an additional plank each side. There is optional buoyancy fore and aft using the bulkheads  and enclosed with a flush fitting deck, both supplied. It goes together easily and quite quickly and once completed, looks good and gives good performance on the water. Designed to be paddled with 1 adult  or 2 children while kneeling but a seat(s) could be fitted.

Dengemarsh 12
Length 12' - 6" (3.81m),  Beam 2' - 9" (0.84m), Depth (midships) 1' - 0.5" (0.32m),  Height fwd/aft 1' - 7.5" (0.49m),  Weight (approx.) 44lbs (20kgs),  Crew 2 Adults  #
Built-in buoyancy is supplied fore and aft using bulkheads and decks fitted with small hatches for storage of valuables etc. It takes between 30 and 40 hours to complete. This canoe is ideal for a solo paddle but will also take 2 adults and some gear for day trip or weekend camp etc. or perhaps a day on the water for the kids. It goes together easily and quite quickly. Once completed, it looks good and performs well on the water too. I love the lines of this canoe.

Newmarsh 12 Open Canoe

Length  3.81m  (12' - 6"), Beam    .864m  (2' - 10"), Height Fore & Aft  .559m (22"), Height amidships  .330m  (13.5"), Dry Weight of around  21kg (45lbs). Maximum Load  182kgs  (400lbs), Crew  2

Designed for a day trip or just some fun on the water and to be paddled while kneeling or possibly sitting on the bottom, as I do, but can be fitted with simple plywood seats.
Easily moved about on dry land by an adult with one hand using the centre bar/yoke. Just as easily carried by two people to the water.
Once on the water you will find this canoe performs well and is relatively stable. It is ideal for a solo paddle but will do just as well with two adults.
This canoe was designed to be built using the Stitch & Tape and Clinker ply methods but the kit is supplied to be built using the Clinker Ply method.
It can be built in either 4mm or 6mm plywood but the kit is supplied in 5mm and when finished, is a very good looking craft - in my opinion.
