Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


I have often admired the Adirondack style of Guide Boat with their swept back ends, gorgeous sheer line—often higher forward than aft and pinched entry and exit to their waterline—they came in several different sizes and styles—some with small transoms—and l am not sure that any were ever small enough to be called canoes, but in this case, our client asked us to use the Adirondack style with a single canoe size and the result is a very pretty and efficient little boat for paddling small creeks and waterways otherwise difficult to get at.

Note - the plans now come with plank shapes for a wider 39" beam plus details on possible outriggers etc so that she can be used for rowing.
