I made an 18' redwood strip canoe back in 84. Finished it just about a week before my daughter was born. Just about cost me a divorce but it sure was fun building. Still have it! I think you'll enjoy a project like this plywood canoe.
Location: The Land of the Ice and Snow..... Alaska
I was planning on sealing all of the wood, every square inch of it.
Sooner, just curios how heavy was your canoe when you were finished and what thickness was the plywood you used? I have seen them online from 1/4 inch up to 1 inch. I want to keep it as strong as possible but at the same time fairly light because there is the possibility this boat may have to be portaged at some point in its life. And I would like to be able to and not be stuck with a 300 lb dry boat haha. Im going to play around on Paint on my computer and try to come up with a rough sketch of it. A cad program would be awsome but not sure of a good one thats free.
Any way I will try come up with some examples of what is in my brain.
