    Hi there,
    Does anyone knows where building plans for the attatched canoe or similar
    could be available? Cold molding or strip planking is the preferred construction method. The idea is to convert her into an electric nanoe.
    Thanks for any help!

    Adriano, I have a few of those you might be interested in. I have a 17' and a 19', both double ended canoe shapes, one better suited for sail, the other row and low power. I have a third with a small transom, much like a skinny Whitehall (about 20'), that would row and low power nicely, but her aft bilges are too high to sail well.

    John Gardener also has several designs along these lines.

    Thanks Paul,
    I was looking mainly for a traditional canoe electric powered and I think two from the "makeacanoe" company are perfect.
    By the way, hope to start to build your designs soon! and I may get back to you on this.

    Traditional and electric?

    You meant to write traditional paddled canoes?

    No, he meant both, which is traditional. At the turn of the 20th century there were quite a few of these electric, usually fat canoes, often used a launches or casual puddle touring.

    Adriano is a client of mine, so your attempts are once again an indication of what type of contributor you are here.

    Adriano, how did your middle Asia efforts work out?

    Hi Paul,
    am right there and it looks like finally next month I should get a nice shed on the water front. It could become a nice set up and really look forward to working on your nice designs! Hope as next project also to develop with you a new craft specific designed for local market.

    By the way, it's better to ignore such messages, sometime people do get bored and needs to find something to do....!

    I agree my friend, but this one likes to bash the USA and anyone that differs with his quite closed mind, so I take exception on him.

    PAR,

    I apologize, you seem to have confused me with someone you hate.
