Class Description

If you've been dreaming of paddling lazily along backwaters and lakes, enjoying nature to its fullest andlistening to the calming sounds of water lapping against a wooden hull that you built yourself, let thisclass be the first step towards realizing the dream of launching your own, hand crafted canoe.

In this seminar, master canoe and kayak builder Carley Abner, will share his building insights, including pitfalls to avoid along the way, so you can more confidently begin (and finish successfully) your first strip canoe project. You'll get a stem to stern overview of the complete build process: choosing plans and planning, wood selection, mold & hull construction, epoxy mixing & fiberglass lay up, sanding and fairing, gunnels and thwarts, seat choices, and embellishing using visual symmetry of materials, inlays and outlays. So bring pen, paper, camera phone (and a brown bag lunch) so you can capture the wealth of information Carley will share for helping you jump-start building (and paddling) a canoe you can truly call your own!
