Will We be able to construct Her in Your usual method or will it be a srongback jobby?


Either will be an option. I show where a 4" waterline is on all the temp frames so a builder could mount them on a strongback with some extension blocks if they wanted.

Does the Sasquatch have an extra panel each side? 'cause it's something to do with it looking more rounded, maybe it's the more aesthetically pleasing symmetry (as opposed to thinking about performance).

I don't know what I want but I know what I like...

I like the look of that drawing and yep I'd be interested in the slightly larger version for paddling with an adult and two littlies

The Sasquatch does have an extra panel per side. The could very well be the reason it looks nicer. Will perform better with the extra panel too

You performance hardcore, touring canoing "purists" don't like a bow stem that recurves back toward the top. They say it serves no purpose. I think it looks nicer and I also think many of the "purists" are manufacturers who have a hard time making that recurve pop out of fiberglass mold.

Matt;
From the link to your site.

"We received requests for the Sasquatch 16-33 to be offered in a shorter and narrower configuration so it could be used as solo tripping canoe or to take a passenger along for short trips. The 16-33 version is the result of that request."

Shouldn't that second 16-33 be 14-30?

Nice looking boat.

Got the 16'6" plans. Matt ya think this one would be a better choice
to build first? It sure is pretty. My pirogue is coming along ok. I'm
gonna want to build after it.

Compliments, Keith
