Pondering a quick and dirty Squirt build

Postby capehorn » Tue Jul 31, 2018 8:44 am

As I have a large supply of red cedar I would like to use it for most of the build including 1 1/2" X 3/8" strip planking like a kayak. To be glassed. Power will be a 9.9 Mercury I have and will use the boat only on small rivers and creeks, no wake jumping. :lol: Have build two canoes and one kayak and like the strip process. Also built a house boat and have a nice woodshop. What you think? Don't know why the canoe pix posted twice?

Sounds like a good idea to me! It will look great wood strip.

It should work for something that small glassed both sides and heavily reinforced.
IMO it would cost so little to get the right materials and the "quick" part would be realized too.
