Perttu Builds a Plywood Quick Canoe in Finnish Snow

Some pictures from “Pepe” (who we know as Perttu in Finland) off the PDRacer forum who is building his Quick Canoe in tricky conditions.

I find it hard to wrap my mind around it!!! Those guys (meaning all the far northern hemisphere builders are tough boatbuilders.

The Quick Canoe comes out of two sheets of 6mm plywood and is designed to be a very simple plywood canoe that works OK

Before the keel is added there is a metre of snow each side.

After the keel and seats are added there is still a metre of snow.

Perttu supplied me with some feedback that the duct tape is not quite strong enough in cold weather to hold the front of the boat together, though it is OK along the sides.  So I have modified the plans with a simple improvement.

Snow everwhere but the resin and plywood have bonded to make the canoe.
