    Beautiful canoe--- simple, clean lines... love the seats and tiny decks that appear to be just a sliver of wood (reminds me of a Gerrish).

    Dear Terho,

    Thank for your quick reply.

    I do not read German (I suppose the it is in German). In the website, it is listed for 990 Euro, which I believe that for the kit? I do not intend to purchase the kit from Northern Europe and ship it all the way down to SEA. I am only looking for classic plan, and if possible a free plan.

    Kind Regards,

    It looks like terhohalme is a German dealer for Chesapeake Light Craft -- go to for plans and kits for the boats shown on the German site.

    Back in the early 90s, I constructed a Wee Lassie in much the same manner.

    I lofted plans from Adirondack Museum. Instead of rounding the forms like a normal stripper, I just used 1/4"x 3/4" strips that were flat edge glued to make 4" wide planks.
    I applied them to the forms the similar to the way wood canvas canoes are built, except I used staples.
    The joints were tight, and I glassed the inside and out like a stripper. Sorry I didn't take any pics. But I still have the forms.
