Autumn boat building project

I am planning to build a canoe in the Autumn and my favourite is a linen covered one, sealed with a UV cured linseed oil resin. The kit is produced by a local farmer which makes it interesting. This is a video of one he has just built, which I had a paddle in. It is very stable and goes like a rocket with a double paddle. The skin is semi-transparent, which makes it interesting.


  1. Hi Julian, looks great, do you know how much the kit is?


  2. About £500 all in, but he is still working out the details. It will include everything but varnish and cushions. I am going to be a guinea pig amateur builder, so that I can help him work out details of bulding instructions etc.
