Do you mean a cedar canoe made with cedar planks and ribs with no outer (or inner) skin? That is, with ribs and tight fitting cedar planks.

Or do you mean a cedar/canvas canoe? Also ribs and planks but a painted canvas skin to keep the water out.

Or do you mean a cedarstripper? A ribless construction using narrow cedar strips encased in a clear fiberglass inner and outer skin.

The book described in the previous post touches on all but is concerned primarily with the latter.
