Perttu took his recently built “Quick Canoe” on a trip down a river in Finland.We don’t have rivers like this in Australia! To see them is quite exciting.The Quick Canoe is designed to be very cheap and easy to build, but still work OK.
Perttu is building his Quick Canoe in almost impossible conditions.The middle of the Finnish Winter.But the boat is going together well. He is building it very cheaply out of ply and polyester resin.
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.
