Re: Made a Eastern Red Cedar Nomad

Totally A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! What a beautiful canoe, and a great story. I love the differences between the sap wood and the hard wood, such contrasting colors make for a beautiful canoe. I hope you enjoy her for many years to come. Greg

Re: 16' 0" Prospector

Thanks, Jim. It is supposed to represent a sun burst, or sun's rays. Maple and walnut, I like how it turned out, as does Megan. I've only built stemless, as I started with Gilpatrick's book before I found this site and Ted's book. Going to have to break the line, though, as the next project is a Ven...

Re: First time Yak for my daughter

Cruiser and Sedges, thanks for giving me your thoughts and it's nice to be in touch with you guys after so long. I was on the site a lot back in 2004/5 when I built my second White Guide. In looking over the profiles for the Venture, it seemed to me like it should be a pretty good boat, so I was sur...

First time Yak for my daughter

Hi all, I am going to build a kayak for my second twin daughter. I finally finished Twin #1's 16' Prospector a few weeks ago. Maddie is 5'8", about 125 lbs, and athletically gifted, but not very active. She wants a kayak. I've been searching a lot of books and plans. She doesn't want a long touring ...

A Return to building and the BM Forum

Hello, My name is Greg, but some of you old-timers may remember me as canoeblderinmt. I was active in the forum in '05 and '06 (has it really been a DECADE?!?!?!?), when I built my 20 foot White.
