Canoes are so - damned - special. What a magnificent craft.

Hmm, appropriate. A boat named Sasquatch, with a sasquatch paddling. Neat! :lol:

Hey Mick
This build looks quite like the trapper, so I have a few questions.....
The trapper has bulkheads very similar, but I'm not sure how to find a "datum line" so they could all be mounted to a strongback. Maybe Matt can press a button and give the answer !
Also, the piece of ply at the front (Stem?) seems a good idea for keeping things true, and I"m guessing 3mm isn't going to interfear with the big picture
Are all of my above ramblings sound thinking ?
Cheers
Col

Hmmm... I usually put that in the drawing package but it's not on there. I'll get that posted.

G'day Col, Matt has answered the S'back thingy and the ply inset in the ends works a treat mate. i think the trapper will be a superb boat. :D

Mick
