Here is a link to a very nice short video of the CanoeCraft Prospector strip cedar canoe being made. I want to make the slightly shorter version also shown in theCanoeCraft book called the Ranger: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V...e=BFa&list=WLF7ADD4617FB580C6

Thanks Border....just wondered if anyone could remember......I got a feeling in my bones that if it did fizzle out Gareth will most likely ignore this post

Hi guys,

Yes, I built a boat, but because of my illnesses earlier this year, and then becoming extremely busy I have not finished it let alone undertaking a maiden voyage. She has been sheeted down to protect her from the worst of the winter weather, and as soon as the weather changes for the warmer I'll finish her and then launch her. I would prefer to post the whole project up in one hit rather than bits & pieces over several months................please bare with me.

"I say Gareth"
Have I missed the finishing stages of this boat build, or is it still too cold and wet in Norwich to get the sheets off and carry on building.
