This is one of my older projects that I thought people might enjoy looking at it.
This is a 17’ cedar strip canoe. I put it together without using staples. Took over 400 hours to make as I had to learn how to do each step as I went. Luckily there are several boat building forums with people willing to help. Woods include red cedar, black walnut,, cherry and ash. The outside has 2 layers of fiberglass and the inside has one. I’ll never get over how a white piece of cloth turns transparent. Just goes to show, you can never have to many clamps.
It was a fun project to build with my boys and I hope I find as much time to paddle it as I did making it.
