    Steven Curious about Wooden Canoes

    I'm getting old or lazy or both? Have built a couple of cedarstrip kayaks but have now decided to build a sailing canoe/kayak. I used to own a Klepper that did a good job as both a paddler and sailer....but wasn't a great sailer nor a great paddler....so new designs....

    I have found old designs (1900) for sail canoes...and have revamped a boat designed by Fredrick Fenger...Union Boat Club One Design. I have extended it 4 ft...changed the bow/cockpit/rudder/centerboard/masts/decking and major part of hull. As I "know" cedar strip building I have built it with strips. Hull is just completed and decking is going on.

    Pictures are available if anyone interested.
