Sophia 10 Plans
This canoe is based on our Christine design. She has a length of 10' (3.05m) and a beam of 26 1/2" (0.67m) with a nice round bilged shape given by having 4 planks per side. There is a buoyancy/storage chamber at each end and she is designed to be used like our Little Kate design, with the crew sitting on the bottom of the boat and leaning against a backrest. Mid hull depth is 10" and she is designed for use by children or a small adult with a double paddle.
Below is a nice example of the Sophia built by Kevin Ralphs being enjoyed by his grandchildren Alex and Melina.
