Hi, I have a few questions which I hope someone can answer. I want to build a birch bark canoe but this will be my first build of any form of canoe so advice would be great. Firstly I live in England so I realise I am going to have to import at least the Birch bark so does anyone know of the best route to do this? I have had a look at barkcanoe.com who has a stock of birchbark and also says that he would be able to do a kit with everything needed to make the canoe. Does this sound like a good option? I would prefer to get all the materials other than the bark in the uk to save on the shipping. I do however want the canoe to be as correct to the originals as possible so do not want to substitute materials even if it means paying for shipping. Also on barkcanoe.com the birch they supply seems to come from siberia and only in smallish sheets, will this provide an authentic finish? Does anyone know of any other suppliers who would be willing to ship to the uk or how much the shipping would cost? On barkcanoe.com they have the home build pack which looks very good and the owner has been very helpful so I am thinking I will get one of them first if you agree that it is a good idea. I saw the thread on this site discussing this topic which also looked very good. Would this be the best start? Thanks and sorry for so many questions I hope I have not asked questions that have already been answered.
