I call it this because anything that could go wrong did. This is the Wabnaki model from Gilpatrick’s book. It is 16’ long and has two seats ( you can only see one in these pics.). Sorry there are not better pics., but it was 5 degrees this morning and I didn’t spend a lot of time taking photos. This is my second canoe. The pics. of the first one are lost somewhere in cyber space and gone for good. Glad to finally have this done and out of the shop! My shop is 20’ by 20’ so this canoe took up much of the space. Now maybe I can get to posting some of my other projects, and making new ones. Any comments are welcome.

You have my congratulations. If building those things was quick, easy and cheap a lot of us would be cranking the out. A lot of us aren’t.

That’s a work of art! Too bad it’s going to be a while till the water warms up enough for a test drive.
