Designed for a day trip or just some fun on the water and to be paddled while kneeling or possibly sitting on the bottom but can be fitted with simple plywood seats.
Easily moved about on dry land by an adult with one hand using the centre bar. Just as easily carried by two people to the water. We took two of these on a camping trip and they perfomed well.
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 average adults.
This canoe was designed to be built using either the Stitch & Tape method or a version of Clinker Plywood method. It can be built in either 4mm or 6mm plywood and when finished, is a very good looking craft - in my opinion.
Standard Package includes - the hull built in 4mm hardwood marine plywood, painted/varnished to your choice of colour outside, varnish or colour inside, varnished trim, with built in buoyancy, rope, 1.2m paddle and an adult buoyancy aid.
