This little canoe is more of a play thing but can be and is used (under supervision) by kids or a small adult.My own teenagers have built and used this canoe though now they will be building bigger ones. It is also being regularly built by a charity who have a mini regatta every year. It is a little under 8'  at 7' - 7" (2.31m) long and 2' - 2" wide at it's widest point. Built in 1 sheet of 4mm plywood and some 6mm for the bulkheads, it is also very light. It has been built as a garden ornament/planter and a toy box.

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 14 - 28 days from order and payment.
