With The money you save building this canoe, you could nicely out fit it, with all of the camping gear that you'll need.



I am currently teaching trades and technology at the local high school. I myself am a journeyman carpenter, but not a boat builder! Since we live on an island, I found it most fitting to learn to make boats with the class.


I found your site through Google, and at the outset I was sort of reluctant to buy the manual, as I have seen other sites that offer building manuals but haven’t heard good things about them. But I bought it anyways, and so far, so good!


I looked through the entire manual and I was actually thinking the other day ‘I should get a hold of this guy and leave comments/suggestions!’ and now that we are in contact, I will definitely do so!


I will be using this manual in the class.

I will continue using this manual for future shop classes.


Thanks again, I hope people continue to buy it and use it in the years to come!

Building your own canoe is cost efficient. You can build this canoe at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a ready made manufactures model.


You can make modifications that suit you and your needs. Such as seat placement/height. Motor placement. The number of modifications are only limited to your choices.


I plan to use my boat for the summer and then maybe build a smaller version.
