Siren, check this out and see if it's in the ballpark for an idea.
http://www.clcboats.com/boats/millcreek.php/cart_id=622ac426835e04e3e8ab861ea870c6c1/

I've built one of these and it was a fun little boat. Wouldn't head down the Nahanni in it but it would work for "posin' in the flotilla" and you could single blade it if desired.

Just a thought........ :wink:

h o w e v e r their canoe looks like a dingy (all that fancy lapstraking :-? )

Sweat pas on the link.
Here's another for homework/reference....... :wink:

The Mill Creek wouldn't be considered a lapstrake......... :tsk:

I want to 'remember' the canoe

from the CLC site;
Quote:
The Mill Creek 13™ echoes the feel of 1920's "double paddle" canoes. Combining the stability and comfortable seating of a canoe with the light weight and decked-in security of a kayak
Ever hear of Nessmuck? :roll:

The one I made had a larger cockpit (almost open ie: "canoe like"), paddled well (slightly heeled) with a single blade (canoe paddle) and was faster than my 16' canoe when I used a double blade in the MC. :wink:

A more "rounded" "canoe like" version would be.....

Might be closer to what you have in mind.

Doubt Newfie's would take offence, "dem's dories, nawt dingies" :lol: :lol:

No offense taken, Sireen, at least not by that comment!. No lapstrakes used backed there for punts, dories, dinghys or even "dingys" (hey, isn't that what a canoe looks like after meeting a few rocks)

Siren, with you on the "sassy-sumthin", too many hard edges !! The link I sent earlier should have taken you to the Mill Creek...... oops !!

No :oops: necessary just trying to spread a cape over those puddles and help a Lady load her blasters in case the big NavArch with the light-Kaper jumps all or you for nomenclature... :lol: :lol:

FLASH

Siren1 reveals weight.

There that wasn't so hard now was it? :D

But no cheque. Promises glory instead (been there, got that) S is getting cheap in her dottage.

Hollow promises are boring and the Naval Architect has designed two boats while S dithers.

She wants a figure head. Maybe the Governor general or the Queen
Forget I said that. :D .

She wants two piece Finnish plywood boat. Nothing to it, S, Pull out the old scale rule and scissors. Try cutting up some cardboard and taping the model together. See what you can do. Why not have all the glory for yourself. No need to share it with churlish old male designer.

Still wants a keel and outrigger. Go for it. Will it spin?

S has made progress. She has GROOOWWWWN.

Unfortunately, she seems to have lost her head but can she fly?

:o Holy cow, it's got it's own tug !!!!

Trying to grasp the "Ferrari" red thing but it's just not happening for me yet. At least it's Italian though so red just might work. 8)

You'll need a few banks of oars for that baby I'm guessing :lol:
