18' Outboard Motor Canoe Plans
I was asked to take the 15â (4.58m) Outboard Motor Canoe design extend it to 18' and also add 2" (50mm) to the hull depth. This new design uses the same basic hull shape with itâs narrow flat bottom panel with 3 further panels added each side to form an attractive but stable and easily built shape. 3 seats plus a forward stowage area are shown but she could be fitted out with a different arrangement to suit individual needs.
Normally a 1â2 1/2 hp outboard is used but larger outboards can be used.
