Cool, I built a wood strip canoe in highschool. Have you put any fiberglass cloth or resin on it yet? If not let me know I will give you some tips to make it perfect before you get the cloth on. It will look like it was built by someone who has built 50 of them.I'm not a kayaker yet but hope to be by the end of the summer... I am currently in the process of building a sea kayak from cedar strips. It has been a slow process for me because the Kayak takes a back seat to all of the other things in my life. So far, I have half of the Hull complete. I still have a ways to go.
It will either be a kayak or the one of the best bonfires my neighborhood has seen.
Here's what it will look like, eventually (only not as good)...
