How to Lightweight – Balsa Canoe strip planked 12lbs (5.5Kg)

A 12lb canoe. The idea was to build a Rushton Wee Lassie in balsa strip with very light glass. The boat ended up being fairly durable despite not being interested in durability. As far as I was concerned I was going to be happy if it lasted a couple of years before being chucked into a dumpster somewhere. But five years later it was still beautiful despite good use.

Why are these plans FREE? Because I want people to know just how good correctly proportioned touring paddles can be. Most of the paddles sold commercially are based heavily on racing models, which are fine if you are in training and only want to go 500 metres at the highest possible speed. For the rest of us there is a better balance available when we might be paddling for several hours or where the boat may be loaded. The oars were drawn to fit the Goat Island Skiff, but will fit other boats of a similar width.
