View Full Version : s&g canoe?

01-31-2001, 03:44 AM
I wan't to build a 17' expidition type canoe for my wife and I. This would be my first attempt at boat building and was wondering if stitch and glue would make a suitable canoe. The strip canoe's are beautiful but kind of pricey and intimidating for a first attempt. Are there any plans for this and how much would something like this cost? Any good books or websites? Or should I consider other construction methods for a 17+foot canoe?

I'm about to build one this winter.

Check out Selway Fisher in England. He has lots of stitch and glue canoes and some of them are quite good looking as far as multi chine canoes go!

You could also try www.pygmyboats.com. Noah's also distributes plans from them, but their S & G canoe is hot off the presses, so Noah's might not have it shown on their web page yet, so go see pygmy's page. I saw a great review of the boat in Canoe & Kayak.
