Sasquatch 15-30

The Sasquatch 15-30 is one of many Sasquatch canoe models.

 

The ideal environment for this hull is touring. With its moderately rounded hull cross section, it will move quickly through the water and be able to handle a variety of paddling conditions. While it will not be as stable as some of our recreational canoe designs, it will be comfortable boat to paddle with 170 pounds [77 k] or more on board. Loading the hull with less than that weight could make the hull feel tippy to a novice paddler.

We offer a set of full scale paper pattens for an additional cost. The patterns include one full size copy of each panel. This is a symmetrical design. One panel pattern can be used to create the 4 total copies of each panel needed to assemble the hull. See the assembly instrutions for further details. The print out is over 10' [3 m] long and arrives rolled up in one continuous sheet.

Cost:

For epoxy and fiberglass, starting price will be about $280 plus shipping in the United States depending on the brand and vendor you choose. This doesn't include items such as varnish, brushes, rollers, mixing sticks, gloves, etc. See our list of trusted suppliers.

For marine grade plywood, price will be about $200 if you pick it up yourself. Delivery cost of full sheets of plywood is expensive.

Labor:

Please Note: This is a multi-paneled hull and will require significantly more effort to assemble than some of our other designs. If you're a first-time builder, we highly recommend you consider completing a simpler project first. What you learn on the first project will allow you to build a better, lighter second project.

The hull will required about 70-85 hours to complete. You can save about 10-15 hours with a precut kit. These times are rough estimates and will vary according to the skill of the builder. Please note these are "hands on" hours and do not include the time waiting for epoxy to cure.
