At last....a true canoe that can be built with standard size sheets of plywood! Using the multi-chine principle, building your own canoe is fun and easy too. You have a choice of two sizes (13' and 15') both fully detailed on the plans. You get our usual high-quality, step-by-step instructions, full size patterns, and easy to follow plans covering all phases of the construction that Glen-L has become famous for... all at a low price.
The construction method is simple and unique, with the canoe being built over temporary forms. After the boat is planked, these forms are removed leaving a clean interior and a hull that is light weight but still very strong.
How does this multi-chine canoe compare to the conventional round bilge type? Very well indeed! In the water the difference is not readily discernible, and performance is excellent. Truly, this is a canoe that incorporates what most builders want: Simplicity of construction and fine performance, all at a low cost.
