Building Lapstrake Canoes

Building Lapstrake Canoes



Walt Simmons

Lovely boats with the maneuverability of a kayak and the stability of a double ender. These are the easiest to build of all lapstrake boats. They are fast, dry, light, and able. A traditionally-built 15-footer weighs 56 pounds. Includes a 25% off coupon for any of Simmons’s canoe plans.
