Strip Planked MacGregor?

    I'm am looking over the idea of strip planking Iain Oughtred's MacGregor. I was wondering if anyone has pictures they'd be willing to share of a MacGregor or even a WeeRob, that has been strip built, rather than glued lapstrake?

    Thank you

    No reason why not. I've not seen those particular models strip planked however Mac Mcarthys' boats are strip planked and Skip Izon strip planks decked boats.Bearmountain did a MacGregor style hull several years ago. I've seen other individual examples as strip planking is an excellent though mayhaps tedious way to construct a hull.
    All canoes are open to variation in scantlings assuming one keeps to the overall specs as designed.
