Having decided on a canoe the next hurdle was which one? I'd taken a shine to the Selway Fisher Peterborough/Prospector type as a stable and easily managed craft. The thought of 'stitching' together 5 panels of ply per side did put me off a little. I eventually settled on a design by Michael Storer that Raif posted to me. 'Eureka' was the design and Michael was very quick and helpful in answering my questions.
Plans paid for and downloaded I enlarged them on the works copier to A3 size and laminated them. This made them water proof and protects the plywood from coffee cup rings while building!
