This open canoe was designed in 2001 but the plans were not listed some years ago but a back on now. It was designed for a for a customer who wanted a canoe for him and his wife for a leisurely paddle in the canals near their home. It needed to be at least 15ft long, able to take at least 2 adults and some gear for day trip and the odd weekend camp etc. but had to be spacious. It is built in 6mm plywood and requires around 40 - 50 hours to complete.It goes together fairly easily but not as quickly as it has four planks per side to assemble. Once completed, it is a good looking canoe and performs well on the water with built in buoyancy fore and aft that can be fitted with drain plugs or small hatches to enable storage of valuables etc. Designed with seating positions fore and aft.
