All the sizes have the same lines just different lengths and widths along with the ability to carry more the larger they get. Their performance has proved to be better than I expected, they track well even in a breeze with choppier conditions and are quite stable. All were designed to be paddled while kneeling but, as is far more popular these days, seats are an option and the plans do detail them. There are bulkheads fore and aft which, along with the decks, form a watertight compartment or buoyancy tanks. These can be fitted with small hatches for storage of valuables etc and to air the compartments when not in use. Alternatively, drain plugs or a simple hole drilled through the base with a cork or rubber bung to stop the water getting in could be used. In any case, some form of drainage should be fitted to them.
Custom Built Ready for the Water – from £695 for standard build
The standard built canoe is built in a quality marine plywood, trim and seats (optional) and the hull is then finished - one colour outside, white or varnished inside with varnished wood trim and seats. A paddle (1.2m) and a 5m mooring rope are included and it's ready to launch. These canoes are built to order which gives you an opportunity to decide on a colour and make any other changes you might want. Depending on those changes, your canoe could be ready in 21 - 28 days from order and payment.
