Woodland 15 Open Sailing Canoe Plans
This is a clinker/ply open canoe with graceful lines. We have given the hull shape a fairly fine entry so that she glides on the water and also a good waterline beam to allow her to carry a substantial rig for open canoe racing. She has 5 planks per side which are 4mm thick to keep her weight down. The plans give full size templates for the moulds (sections) to be used on the building jig and details are shown for the clinker/ply construction process (please note that we can also develop the plank shapes if a builder wants to build her using simple stitch and tape methods).
She can of course be used without the rig as a roomy and stable open canoe to take 2/3 adults but she was designed very much with fast and efficient sailing in mind and to this end, full details are given for the add-on leeboards, rudder and rig which has an area of 43 sq.ft. (4 sq.m.).
