Re: Strips for sale (Eastern White Cedar)

Hi Sylvain, my problem is emphysema and my lungs function at only 20%. This means that I can't do any kind of work or even go for a walk because I run out of breath very quickly. I can't even use the boats that I built. It is never going to get better, only worse.

Re: Question about inner stem instructions in CanoeCraft

That is correct. Just one note: the horizontal portion of the outer stem should be tapered from full width of 3/4" to only 3/8" where it feeds into the keel line. This taper will start approximately 10" from the keel end of the stem.
