The 4.2m long by 750mm wide canoe we are building can be carried by one adult, fits on a standard car roof rack, is easy to paddle, and is very stable. No sawing of plywood or special woodworking skills are required- if you can tie your shoelaces (thread a plastic cable tie), ice a cake (spread some glue), and hold a cordless drill, then you can build this canoe. The canoe makes an excellent parent/child project- builder’s ages have ranged from 7 (with a parent) to over 70, and all have had their canoes ready for the water on the last day. If looked after, this canoe will provide years of boating fun for the whole family.
