That's a really beautiful looking canoe Dave. You should be proud! :clap:

Hope to see it one day in the water with you in it. I'll have a million questions for you if that day comes. Maybe the SO gathering? :wink:

ok Dave, this is cheezin me off. i picked up all my wood and such before you... :doh:

Love the seats... did you get a pattern for them from somewhere? i have seen this rounded type before, i guess theres no trick, just takes more material.

Is your Yolk removable?

I guess its to late to say SLOW DOWN, YOUR MAKIN ME LOOK BAD!

i was up at canadian canoes a couple of weeks ago, and there was a really nice retired guy building a yak, he was 3 weeks into it, and had the hull fibreglassed. would be nice if i had the time to put into it.

By the way Boneli, i slipped away from my desk for a half hour today, and got the mortice cut for my rear stem. Good advice!

Your quite welcome.

If you have anymore questions, please feel free to PM me again or e-mail me through my web page. I also have some tips on the glassing if you need them.

Cheers

Dave;

It looks great,
I'll be starting my "Osprey" when the garage warms up.
I've been working on the seat, paddle, thwarts & yoke over the winter.
I noticed that you did not put a sliding seat in it, what are your thought on the sliding seat?

If it makes you feel better, my buddies sea kayak was started 17 months ago. The outside of the hull is fibreglassed and the deck is partially planked.

My canoe took about 14 months elapsed time.

A canoe should take about 200 Hours or less. You could measure it in days or months or years but in hours you can campare apples to apples better to see which one took longer.

For me both of mine took around 180 hrs.

Doug'

I thought of puting a sliding seat(bought the wood to do it) but didn't think it was necessary(I hope).Most of the time I will use the canoe for a day trips.When I take it on longer trips I can use the packs to trim the boat.

Eric,
The plans for the seat came from http://www.greenval.com
Yes the yoke is removable,it has to be on a solo canoe as it would be in the way when sitting on the seat.

Great work Dave... my compliments! Thanks for the photo's on you webpage.

I'll be starting building my "40lb Osprey" in a while, just moved to my new house which has a nice "canoe building barn" and I just finished re-designing my barn in order to make a suitable workshop.

You didn't go for light weight did you? Thwarts look nice, your own signature to the finishing touch... but if I would like to get the Osprey down to 40lb that thwart would probably be to heavy! Did you happen to weigh your finished canoe? Just curious..

What's your next canoe building project... or are you going to enjoy your Osprey first?

Let us know how it performs on the water... alsways nice to read some Osprey reviews!

Nice job, Dave. Makes me feel good about designing the boat when I see projects like your come off so well.
