LOVES Wooden Canoes
They may be a little ungainly for solo paddles but are great for carrying lots of gear(beer and wine for medicinal purposes) or dead animals for those so inclined. Solo I use oars, although if a bunch are up to it they paddle well enough. Mine constructed on the lines on the 6 fathom north canoe from adney and capelle Skin and Bark boats (without the last 6 ft.) the motors are 20hp hondas that get about 60 nm per tank on average. I started building them when the kids were young as (pre internet) I could not find a source.
