The Ranger is a simple multi-purpose canoe design for first time or young builders who want a quick, simple and low cost boat to get them onto inland waterways. Although a single chine design she still has graceful lines and she can be built both in 12' and 16' versions either as a simple open canoe or as a decked kayak with built-in buoyancy and stowage spaces. Beam in both versions is 32" (0.8m) and 2 sheets of 4 or 6mm Exterior ply are required for the construction. The plans come with details of floats and of other versions (see table under "Particulars" tab).
