Explorer 15 Plans

Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


This design is a slightly smaller sister to our Explorer 16' open strip planked canoe - in this case we have used a similar hull design with a 'U' shaped mid body with plenty of tumblehome in the topsides making her easy to paddle and very stable. Construction is from 5 or 6mm Cedar strip glued edge to edge over a building jig. The jig uses mould sections which are computer faired and given full size on the plans. She can be set up for single use but the drawings show seats for up to 3 people.
