What if

I love the North wind ,
But what if you dropped everything 8 to 10%
A 16 by 26 inch wide boat.
Do you think it would keep its good qualitys .

You'd lose some stability but it would be a rocket.

I'll put them at the front of the to-do list if you prototype a "unique" but simple canoe for me. But you have to build to spec. :mrgreen:

Matt
Send me the specs on the canoe.
Which is easier for you to draw a full length panel stitch and glue or a full striper.
I would be happy with either one on this boat ,performance on the two North Winds is just about identical.
