Sounds like you need a baseline to get it rolling.

"I like this model, but want more....."

"Like this this except..."

Depending on intention for design, like mass sales, sounds like you'd have to prototype it and then tweak with Rev 2.

So the $100,000 question is, which model out there is the closest you've seen to what your vision is?

I believe Siren might like the flying canoe on the Maudite bottles...they have wings I think...

nonono the Flashfire and the Wildfire will not do..Tubby little plebian boats for daytime use only (tongue in cheek I have a Flash and its fun especially Hiding Harold, the self propelled boat that spins).. That green is not comely in Kev Crystal. Perhaps Black Gold but there must be multicolored spanglies under the clear coat for a little pizzazzz. The Magic would be so much better if appropriately clad.

I recommend for the Gatineau a tandem about 36 inches wide with a center seat where you may sit side by side with your beloved; one facing each way. One may paddle and the other may be a good Canadian.

Actually Kim, considering Burton's definition of a "Canadian" the design would require different seating arrangements and less need of a paddle. The 36"'s of width would likely be appreciated tho......... :lol:

Siren is an inventive Canadian and she may need the seat. The other way is too too old hat. Berton would I am sure applaud ingenuity.

Or maybe the seat is the American way? I have only seen Texans do side by side paddling( well half of each were paddling). Come to think of it they were using a carry thwart..

Which brings up the point that sometimes tandem paddling ought to be done in other ways. Sitting close together facing one another on separate seats one paddling backwards comes to mind as far more interesting than staring at someones back.

Hey, they are only half Texan. Bob was from Maryland, and lived in California and Oklahoma before moving to metro Houston. Karen was a Mainer before moving to Texas... I think you have to live in Texas for more than a few years before you are a True "Red State" Texan.

Siren, how bout something along the lines of an old sturgeon nose galley, bireme, etc.
Kind of goes with the whole Siren, Odysseus thingy don't it ??

Might sound a little "cheese" but one done of wood strip showed up at a "Meet at the Beach" here in BC awhile back hosted by Orca Boat's. Saw it in the pic post that followed the event but I'll be hornswaggled if I can find a link to the pic site.Workin on it............. :wink:


other suggestions might be the Swan Boat of Galadriel or the elven boats used by the Fellowship of the Ring,.... impress the heck out of Tolkien fans :lol:

I can't think of a clever emblem but I see

A flying dragon
a heart
butterfly
and a mermaid impression for the bow.

as artwork to address your dream.

as for boat ,

I think you should maybe pick up one from Skip Izon.
Grace, agility, stability, etc....

anyway, just thoughts

Watch out for them sturgeon nosed canoes...they are lightning fast but knife through waves and they do not turn. I would think Sirens boat would be full of curves and not angles as in a Kootenay boat.

Perhaps an Egret....

PK maybe I wasnt talking about them.. There are many other Texans.

Does Siren require a removable middle thwart?

Inquiring minds wish to know before the design is started so that the appropriate fasteners are made.
