I have a 16' white water I built from Gilpatricks plans. I would like to square the stern and mount a motor on it, to use on area lakes.
How would this affect the overall performance from a canoe standpoint?
If it is viable to do this, how much of the stern should I cut off?
I also heard that it is harmful to haul a cedar strip like a boat on a trailer, any truth to this ?
Thanks for your suggestions
