Video of Quick Canoe in Hungary.

A video of the Quick Canoe in action.My Agent in Hungary who sells plans in both English and Hungarian has launched the first Quick Canoe in those parts. It is designed as a very simple and easy to build boat. It is not a perfect high performance boat, but the numbers have been worked out to give good performance despite the simple shape. It won’t be as good as the best fibreglass canoe, but it will be better than many average ones. And much cheaper and lighter.

Quick Canoe Plan. 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.

Koala builds a Eureka Canoe in Europe!

Since finding a UK Agent and doing some linguistic work on my website the spread of boats being built to my plans has become … rather large. The Excerpt is written by “Koala” in Slovenia (sorry Koala for my confusion about Slovenia/Slovakia) who is building a Eureka – the reason for the name? Maybe he […]

“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.
