The deck is a heat shrink dacron to keep the canoe on those rough days on the Adk lakes.

Can't miss that portage sign, then again if you do miss it you'll probably get ground up in the turbines. This was the start of a 1 1/2 mile portage through the city of Holyoke on the Connecticut River including the crossing of a 4 lane highway, probably the most dangerous portage I ever completed.
Hard to stand up straight after 7 days of 40+ mile days.

Same here...
I'm dyin' to see those photos, but I thought it was just me!!

John, Bob, can you guys fix them, somehow?

Meanwhile, here's a quick look at my next boat.



OK, a little explanation is in order.
That's a test patch, 2 layers of carbon fiber, with 2 layers of 6 oz E-glass, saturated with epoxy resin. All of that is plastered on the top of a previously glassed panel. The plastered side has 2 coats of PVA as a mold release. Hopefully, the test patch will peel off of the panel without too much trouble. It would really suck to cover my boat with carbon, glass and resin and not be able to separate the copy from the plug (my canoe)!!

I also am unable to see Connecticut Yankee's photo's but would like to if I could. Stripperguy, that looks very interesting. Will you have to take the gunwales off or can you work around them when using your canoe as a plug? I can't remember how far they extend beyond the outside of your canoe, and I'm not sure if it would matter anyway.

Zach,
I plan to work around the gunnels...somehow.
I may need to extend the sides on the new hull, we'll see.
When I have a little more to show, I'll start a new thread on the composite build up.

Wha, you need a shorter paddle, you will blow your shoulders out with those paddles. A rule of thumb is your hand should not be much above your head. Nice boats by the way.

Not the prettiest one that I've done, but it was a lot of fun to build!
14' 8" J Winter designed "Kite"
Carbon fiber, E-glass, foam, epoxy resin composite
28 lbs all done

That photo looks like the cascades on South Inlet, Raquette Lake.
