My Canoe Page

I built this canoe with a friend completing them in 1999. "How long", I hear you ask, "did it take to make them?" well If you ask my wife she'll say most of my daughters childhood but in reality about 18 months!

The canoe is a Chestnut Prospector, favourite of Bill Masons, a natural choice! The canoes, we built one each were built from an excellent book called "Canoecraft" by Ted Moores and Merilyn Mohr.

It is strip planked with Western Red Cedar, Epoxied and fibreglassed inside and out using WestSystem Epoxy.

Here are some more pics taken in the summer of 2007 in the discovery islands where we spent many happy hours on the water...
