This is an example of how we can, using our YachtCAD system, change a design from a multi-chine ply hull shape to a round bilged hull shape suitable for strip planking (or visa versa). A client wanted the graceful shape of our Pete canoeâbut he wanted to build in Cedar stripâso these plans include full-size mould shapes and strongback/jig details for the strip method.
She has the same dimensions with a LOA of 15â6â (4.7m); Beam of 36â (0.92m); and midships depth of 13â (0.33m). Her weight will be around 50lbs (23kg). We can supply Peteâs sail plan if required.
