This method is an attempt at improvement of Stitch and Glue. As good as stitch and glue is it does have a lot of labour of drilling holes and physically stitching the hull together. So with this specially designed shape it is stuck together with duct tape or gaffer tape.
I use both conventional stitch and glue and the duct tape assembly method for different canoe designs. To see what I have available have a look at my Plywood Canoe Construction comparison page. Plans can be ordered from that page too.
This new method can save a lot of time. Two separate people in different countries have completely built the quick canoe in 5 1/2 hours including painting. One has succeeded in putting it together in 4 1/2 hours.
Most people can build one in a week of evenings.
The cost has been about $170 in North America or about $250 in Australia.
