|Unfortunate, the way some names have garnered social capital.
Never mind, Beaver (can't say it straight) has nice lines; not unlike the superb Ted Moores designed Chestnut prospector, from memory.
Now, alone in this catalog, and completely out of character, iain specifies, STRIP PLANK CONSTRUCTION!!!@#@$$@!.
Like it less and less, as i get older. Cute looking but very wasteful of solid stock; sawdust uses more of the tree to get to the point than the boat does and zillions of liters of epoxy and meters of cloth.. Lapstrake in 4 mm Gaboon can work nicely. I saw a few years ago an excellent Redbird canoe of Ted Moores done that way.
MUCH lighter, MUCH cheaper to build and MUCH quicker to build also. Took only a wee bit of nutting out. Would be happy to speak with any prospective builder. And when you have finished, your Beaver will have a nice Rushtonesque feeling to it.
Please dont ask me to explain THAT!
