What to build, what to build....

Hello everyone,

It's been awhile since I've posted here due to a major career exam and buying a new home. Although I have always lived just north of the park, I am now officially an Adirondacker!

Anyway, my new home came with a barn and so now I have a huge work shop. My plan is to build my first strip canoe or maybe a guide boat if it's not much more difficult than a canoe. I'm not sure yet though because I'm just starting my research.

I know there are at least a few canoe builders here so I have a few questions for you guys and I'd also appreciate input from first time builders too.

What are some good beginner solo designs? Where can I get plans for these? I'm not really sure why some designs would be more difficult to build than others so I will give you an idea of what I'd like my strip canoe to be. I'd like my canoe to be fairly light, 17'+ and have a good bit of tumblehome. I have a Wenonah Prism now and I'd like a faster boat.

Any thoughts, ideas or advice will be greatly appreciated.
