Here's my entry to this thread. Not a ultra light solo canoe, but serves my purposes well.

A Placidboat Rapidfire and a Swift Keewadin taking a break on the Oswegatchie on a day trip last week. Most who have been there will know this exact location.

Indeed. I used to moor my canoe to that tree root when I camped there in the spring.

I also know it well. Have camped there several times, the last being 3 nights a few weeks ago with one of my sons. With all the rain the week before, the "beach" was under water.

Here's my solo whitewater boat...not a stripper, but ideal for heavy water.

Got board and dredged up this thread today. Thought I'd throw my hat in the ring. I built this last winter and got in a few good trips over the summer. My new years resolution was to get out a lot more this year, so hopefully you'll see me out there.





Going up and down the carpeted boat ramps wore holes in the bow and stern of the boat. Before the ice breaks up, I'll be coating the bottom few inches with truck bed-liner (the smooth kind) and some brass shoes.

First photo is at the start of the 90 Miler early morning Guideboat in Old Forge.

2'nd is one I just came across recently after all these years. This was Spring Break from Paul Smiths College 1970 on the Raquette River coming back down from the Cold River. 44 years ago, wool, flannel no PFD and I had hair.

While not self-propelled watercraft on a wilderness pond, I think these qualify for this category.

I'll scan a few photo's tonight. It's an 18' Lew Miller design that was featured in Canoe magazine. I had zero experience building boats but was young and enthusiastic. The project took all summer and the pic you see was its maiden voyage on Maine's Moose River.

The major mistake I made (not knowing any better) was using vinyl-ester resin. It went on ripply was absolute hell to sand smooth. That may be a blessing now because I'm sure the old stuff will come off with no more than a putty knife. Re skinning is Project 356-B in the lineup, right after painting the house this summer...
