Crew 2 Adult (plus gear)
A simple open canoe designed for a for a solo paddle but also able to take 2
adults and some gear for day trip or weekend camp etc. or perhaps a day on the
water with the kids. Performs really well on the water and has been converted
to sail by several builders in the past. They have been creative by adding
simple out riggers and sailboard sails for more complicated rigs.
Built in 6mm plywood and requires between 30 and 40 hours to complete. It goes
together easily and you get you hull quite quickly using the Stitch & Tape
method of DIY boat building. Once completed, it looks good and performs well
too. Has built-in buoyancy fore and aft that can be fitted with drain plugs or
small hatches to enable storage of valuables etc.
Designed with seating positions fore and aft.
The basic build is based on at least 4 sheets of 6mm Plywood (Good exterior
grade or better), two 4.5m lengths of 12mm x 20mm timber, 1 x 20mm x 40mm x 1m
timber (all soft or hardwood), 3kg/ltr Epoxy Pack plus fillet additive and
Fibre glass Tape.

STANLEY SmallCraft is a business seller. We have been designing, building and
repairing small boats for over 30 years and have been
building our own, original designs for 20 years. In the past 12 years, we have
sold some of the more popular designs as DIY plans, all over the world.
We have built each design ourselves, several times - some a great many times -
using ordinary DIY tools so we can get a better idea of the problems our
builders may come across. We are constantly looking for ways to upgrade and
improve the plans to make it as easy as we can for you to build from them. We
welcome your feedback and always like to see pictures of your finished boat.
We also sell kits, builder packs (epoxy materials etc.), and complete custom
built boats, some of which are sold on . Details of everything we do is on
our website and more information is sent with your plans.
If after buying you are not completely satisfied with any aspect of our
service to you, please contact us before leaving feedback and we will put
