This is the second canoe i made about 4 years ago. This one was a little bit easyer to make now having the experence. I hand caned the seat and let me tell you i thought id never get done . I also carved out the yoke to fit for portage.I couldnt believe how great the yoke came out i didnt think i had it in me (i am no carver)
I didnt want to buy plans so i went to the books and scaled plans . The problem i had was i didnt know where the seat should sit ….well i found out its way to high and needs to be lowered (the canoe flipped with my boss in it LOL )
the strips are of cedar and pine . The gunnels ,seat and part of the yoke is aspen. the decks are made with a wood my boss got me and im just not to sure what its call …i remember wormy in the name .
the canoe is glassed and finished with sprayed on spar . Took me about 2 months .
Hope ya like it was fun to build
