Lunar Eclipse and Plywood Canoe

A nice little reverie from Clinton who built a Quick Canoe this year.After a hectic day in the city he paddled out into the middle of the lake to watch the eclipse in his $300 canoe.

Why do I have an economics graph on my boat building website?

An economics graph on a wooden boat plan website?I am talking about getting out on the water in hard economic times – wooden boats can be very cheap and very, very good.Do a Huck Finn and drift down the Mississippi in a light and simple plywood canoe or sailboat. Adventuring is cheap!

Quick Canoe Plan Info. Woodworker builds in 4.5 hours (I took 2 weekends)

The plywood “disposable” canoe (see here) has been renamed the more salubrious “Quick Canoe”. I quite liked the name of “Disposable Canoe” but I agreed with the critique that it hinted at something that was poor quality rather than simple and Easy.It has been designed to be as easy to build as possible while keeping some of the qualities of a good paddling canoe – in particular the ability to track.

“Disposable” Canoeing – building a canoe in a few hours.

I don’t have a car so how can I go canoe touring? Its something I fell in love with in the USA on Lake Powell.This is an idea for a simple, cheap, almost throwaway (or give away) canoe. I can get the materials shipped to somewhere on a river, build the boat over a couple of days then go for a paddle.At the end I can give the boat away or store it for the next part of the trip.
