All: Attached is a photo of my recently completed build. The water in interior Alaska is still hard so my initial “splash” was more of a “slush”. I built the form winter 0f 2019/2020 and the canoe during this past winter’s Covid19 home stay. To build the form I modified unused plans I had acquired 20 years ago for a wood strip canoe i.e. changed the cross section to accommodate the difference in hull thickness, stretched the length, reduced the rocker, increased the depth and changed the entry lines and shape of the stems. My goal was to end up with a “lake” or “cottage” canoe. Something to paddle on quiet evenings, with room for a kid or a dog in the middle section. Nothing more. I was a little worried I might end up with a pig….but so far I’m relatively happy with the results. I guess I will know more when I have a chance to paddle her this summer. When folks ask me about the model and/or design of this canoe I draw a blank. So, my question to the group is…did I design a canoe?
