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
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 method but it can be built using a version of Clinker Plywood. The plans currently only detail the Stitch & Tape build but the other option will be added soon.
It can be built in either 4mm or 6mm plywood and when finished, is a very good looking craft - in my opinion.
