Canoe Plans

Canoe Plans

We hope you will find our canoe plans diverse and in many cases unique.  Our canoe plans have been sent out thousands of times all over the world and successfully built by people just like you.  Even if you have never built before from a set of plans and have just the minimum of skill, we are confident that our canoe plans and DVD sets will get you on the water.  Our canoe plans range from solo canoes to the large freighter canoes which will carry the whole family and a few neighbors.

Our canoe desings vary because the way you will use them will vary.  If you aren't sure which one is for you then please be sure and get in touch with us.  We are happy to help.  When choosing your canoe plans, consider how you will use your canoe.  Will you mostly be alone, or with others?  Will you be paddling on white water rivers or a chain of lakes?  Do you think you will be carrying gear for a week or need a canoe which is quick to get out in the afternoon after work?  these are all decisions which play a part in the canoe plans you start with.  Or you can just be like us and have a canoe for every occasion in the yard.
