Book - 2001
Rate this:
A lavishly illustrated, user-friendly guide for novices and experienced boat builders alike, The Canoe Shop provides plans and building instructions for three graceful and rugged touring canoes--a 12-foot double-paddle canoe, a 14-foot solo canoe, and a 16-foot tandem boat--that virtually anyone can build directly from the book. Following the same critically acclaimed format found in his classic, The New Kayak Shop, leading North American boat designer Chris Kulczycki walks readers through the entire building process for each boat. One standout feature of The Canoe Shop is a revolutionary, simplified approach to lapstrake construction which makes this traditional technique--considered by many to be the finest method of wooden boat construction--available to amateurs for the first time.- Features three original designs from one of the most respected small-boat designers- Contains dozens of illustrations and step-by-step building instructions
