27' canoe

Are we talking about a Chestnut-style freight canoe (a workboat with a transom) or a Voyageur-style freight canoe for group paddling and tripping?

I have used the lines from the 4 1/2 fathom north canoe in Adney and Chapelle's book (page 143) and they are great boats when your done (I have done 3 of them with various modifications). Just back from using them to go out from Bella Coola to Bella Bella and Aristazabal island. peter
