The "Canoe Shop" arms you with complete plans and step-by-step instructions for building three graceful and rugged touring canoes, including a 12-foot double-paddle canoe, a 14-foot solo, and a 16-foot tandem. You needn't be an experienced boatbuilder to get the most out of this book. All that's required are a few common tools and the most basic woodworking skills. The secret is Chris Kulczycki's original LapStitch approach, which combines traditional lapstrake boatbuilding with the simplicity and ease of modern stitch-and-glue construction.With the help of 170 photos and illustrations, Chris walks you through the entire process for all three designs - from reading the plans to painting or varnishing your new canoe. "Recommended reading for anyone contemplating going paddling in a kayak of their own creation." - Sea Kayaker. "This is a very useful book, clearly written, well illustrated, fully explanatory...You will be sold on building your own wood kayak." - "Atlantic Coastal Kayaker".
