This is my 16’ Peterborough Cedar Strip Fiberglass/Epoxy canoe.
I built this over a few months back in 2004.

Since this is the biggest project I’ve tackled, I thought it would be a good one to start with.

I’m in the process of fully documenting the project from start to finish on my blog if you’re interested in my blathering on about all the gory construction and finishing details.

Hope you like it.

Good job, like the deck treatment. Is that a Bear Mountain Boat design?
Are you inwales maple or ash?
