12'x30" Adirondack Guide Canoe Plans
I have often admired the Adirondack style of Guide Boat with their swept back ends, gorgeous sheer lineâoften higher forward than aft and pinched entry and exit to their waterlineâthey came in several different sizes and stylesâsome with small transomsâand 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.
