I built the Quick Canoe in a day and a half. This is way slower than some of my customers.It is the first time I have been disappointed building a complete boat this quick.The risk of high expectations!But a day and a half with the problems I had is pretty good.
Is it revolutionary?The Quick Canoe uses Duct tape to hold the plywood together while the glue or glass tape sets up. This can save a huge amount of time.The Quick Canoe is designed to take maximum advantage from the method.
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.
