Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


Christine is one of our most popular designs and is a lightweight open canoe for both occasional use and for single long distance trekking. She was designed for a client in Australia who wanted a canoe of similar design to our Little Kate and Pete designs but with a length in between the two. She has a beam of 31" and has 4 planks per side and will take 2 adults. This gives her good stability and a graceful and sleek appearance. The bottom is slightly veed in the middle of the canoe running into a deep 'V' at both ends. This makes her both fast and directionally stable. Christine uses the stitch and tape method of construction (although we can also supply the mould shapes for lightweight clinker ply construction). A total of 3 sheets of 4 or 5mm ply are used and her weight is approximately 35 lbs depending upon the ply used.
