If I did , it wud be a labor of love , cause I love woodworking , and you most likely couldnt afford it ..

Took better part of a year to do , and thats putting in 15-20 hours almost every week ..

Cedar strips and fiberglass , did all the strips , wore down a good tablesaw in the process .. Made the strongback to lay it out on ..

Try laying a one inch strip on each side , gluing and clamping , letting set overnite , come back next day and lay another set of strips , blend one in a little wrong , rip it out and start over again ..

I always wanted to build one , and I said never again ..

Was fun tho'

I know this has not been looked for a while but check out www.unclejohns.com

plans and frame kit for a very lite yet strong flat bottom canoe, or pirouge.
I have always been a canoe guy. When in South Dakota we used a 16 footer for ducks and geese. Moving to Alaska I found it prohibitive to have it shipped. So I built a Pirouge.

It fits into my 18 foot Lund, weights 45 pounds and will carry me all my gear. The added plus, is it let me hunt some very skinny water other boats can't get to. It cost me about $250.00 resin being the single most expensive component. I chose to use 3/8 plywood for the bottom and 1/4 inch for the sides.

It's and easy project that can be accomplished by most anyone that can use power tools. Mine is not pretty but it keeps the wet stuff on the outside. I find it not as tippy as my old town.
