That was great thanks for sharing. Gorgeous canoe, great job! Nice paddle too! Did you make that also?

thanks for the compliments guys. The PBR was all we had with us(should have brought something special). I did not make the paddle. That is a "Grey Owl-Owl feather" paddle.

Nice video, a good K-9 assistant is vital to any shop project. I'm sure all who are into canoes will recognize the guy in tyvek, another excellent assistant choice. I too, favor and joy in the use of a spoke shave. Your keel line detail is very attractive.
I don't like to be critical but a beautiful canoe should be paddled with a better forward stroke. Try turning the thumb of your top hand downward at the beginning of the corrective phase. I can live with the choice of a PBR.

Thanks for the compliments Conk. And yes I have since learned how to paddle correctly without the goon stroke in the vid. haha. Paul is a great friend of mine. Good of you to take notice.

Nice video and nice build! How do you like that hull? It looks like a speedy one.
In case I missed it, did you say how much it weighs?
Oh, and I really like your shop equipment...

I really like the hull. Its not slow, but also has good stability and tracks straight. It weighs exactly 45lbs. Im happy with that. My hemlock peregrine has almost the same dimensions but is noticeably faster in the water. Maybe the 10 lb weight difference does it.

I have seen that before. It is an incredible amount of work and knowledge. Building a stripper is easy compared to that. thanks for sharing.
