I tried my hand at building canoes, using the wood-strip method. I have completed two canoes, a Peterborough Canadien and a Winisk. I obtained much of the materials for these two canoes at the same time, as this cut down on the total costs considerably.
The fall of 2000 I built a scale model of a Prospector. In the fall of 2002 I built another scale model, this time making my own strips.
In 2003 I built a Caspian Sea kayak.
I am nearing the end of building a Delta V sailboat from Northwest Marine Design. (This project has been interrupted several times.)
I recently repaired an older cedar-strip canoe belonging to my parents.
I have a description of each of these projects, with lots of photographs.
