The Cree 14 is essentially a strip planked version of the Esk 14. The mould shapes are given full-size and details are given for a simple building jig. 6mm thick Western red Cedar is used for the strip planking although other woods may be used.
Normally the hull and deck would be sheathed in 6oz. (210gm) woven roving in epoxy resin.
