Introducing my winter project: Nick Schade's Nymph Canoe featured in WoodenBoat Number 199 and 200 in Nov./Dec. 2007 and Jan./Feb 2008. It is a small, lightweight, double paddle canoe. I'm building it for my mother to use during the summer in Maine. I saw Nick's version at the WoodenBoat Show two years ago and got the urge to try it. His is a 10 ft. version. I decided to stretch mine to 12 feet, which Nick suggests is doable, and see how it goes. Eventually, the cats let me loft it up and here is my progress. I still have to add the stem forms and line everything up. Then I have to decide what wood to build it with. I have not built a stripper before, so this should be fun. I'll keep you posted.
