A 16 foot, 35 inch beam Chestnut Prospector canoe from a design drawing by Bear Mountain Boats made from Western Red Cedar with Ash stems, seats, gunwales ,thwart and accent strips. This is a 1/4 inch thick strip design with mating bead and cove edges, fiberglass, epoxy, then varnish. The strips were milled from approximately 50 board feet of lumber. No staples were used in laying down the strips. It took 2 years to complete, however, there were numerous months during which no work was completed on it. Hand carved one piece cherry paddles.
