After you build a canoe hull, possibly from PaddlingLight’s free canoe plans, and trim it out with thwarts, gunwales and a yoke, you need to add seats. Seats placed near the ends reduce room for the legs of the bowman and width for the sternman.
As an example, let’s say we want to make the Tetes de Boule Two-Fathom Canoe into a cabin canoe with roomy, but not too room paddling stations and plenty of leg room in the front.

Go light; the lighter the better, so that you have the simplest material for health, comfort and enjoyment. We sell plans for contemporary, high performance Canoes and Kayaks from a full range of designs by John Winters. This gorgeous cedar strip canoe features a painted outer hull, with a natural cedar strip finish inside. Purchasers of these plans are also provided with a registered serial number, a set of designer's decals, and on-line help via e-mail from both the designer, John Winters, and from Martin Step, who prepared the drawing package.
All of our plans are now available in electronic format on CD-R or by e-mail - all you need is access to a wide-format printer to print E-Size sheets (34" x 44").
You can also visit our Web Site Directory, or go directly to the Models to see the Available Models, to Order Plans, the Builder's Notes including a new section on Fitting the Stern Seat, technical articles by John Winters, and all kinds of other interesting stuff, including our good friends at Hurley Canoe Company, and our Links. Looking for a good project for your school, Boy Scout Troop, Summer Camp, or charity racing event? The Shape of the Canoe by John Winters, is the first and only book dedicated to the design of small paddle powered boats. This beautiful Winisk, was named "Gargantua" after the Cape Gargantua area of Lake Superior, and is being paddled in its namesake location! We have posted some new photos of a lovely pair of Tasman Sea's built by Bruce Hillstrom of Bridgewater, NS.
If you're thinking about building one of our wood strip canoes, you might like to read the letter sent to us by Chuck Phelps of Pittsford, NY, telling us about "Rosie," his Kipawa 'stripper'! To go along with that masterpiece Osprey you're thinking of building, have a look at a very special removable Portage Yoke which was made for the most recent Green Valley Osprey. A new section has been added to the Builder's Notes dealing with repairs to the hull on your woodstrip canoe.
For some detailed instruction on Making Stems, Gunwales and Bead & Cove Strips, Staining the Hull, 'Glassing the Inside of the Hull, and Varnishing, including Martin's trademark wrap-around ends and inlays, consult the Builder's Notes.
Our most popular model continues to be the Kipawa, but don't overlook our other very interesting models.
Our good friend Jack Hurley at Hurley Canoe in Dwight is happy to report that things are still going strong. EZ CANOE is a 3 part canoe-like boat that paddles easily and nests to only 4' x 27" x 16" high.  Fits in most cars ! The concept for the 'EZ Canoe' was quite simple, and in line with other portable boats I have designed and built. This is the first boat I have designed and built that will not use an electric motor for propulsion.
The construction method is a little unorthodox, however, and may require that the builder experiment with the 'Tape & Glue' process prior to actually starting construction. This was a fun and challenging project for me, as I wanted to complete it in a short period of time, as the summer heat of Arizona was fast approaching (it's now 110F outside as I type this). The plans includes drawings, text and pictures outlining the complete assembly process, with hints and tips to assist the amateur boatbuilder, as well as the professional.

The other methods they used to lightweight the boat were 3mm rather than 6mm plywood toughened up by using 66gsm (2oz) fibreglass over the bottom with a one inch overlap over the top chine.


Historically, few canoes had seats built into them — the paddlers either knelt or sat on gear.
When applying this formula, you can assume that the paddler’s center of gravity equals the front of his seat.
For example, if you’re going to use the canoe for tripping, then move the seats out towards the ends, because the heavier load increases stability and you need the extra leverage to help turn a fully loaded canoe.
That makes his paddling station 2 feet 2 inches wide and the bowman’s is 1 foot 10 inches.
And does this mean that the person in the back should be closer to the middle then the person in the bow??
If you shop at that online store, PaddlingLight gets a small commission from the sale and it doesn't cost you any more. It offers information about lightweight canoe and kayak travel, how-to articles, trip reports, adventure stories, kayak plans, canoe plans and reviews. These models include the Yukon, Raven, Dumoine, Shearwater, the Bering Sea, the Rob Roy, and three versions of the North Canoe.
The Kite is a modified Osprey, with the only difference being the revised chine, which now sweeps gracefully from the tip of the bow to the tip of the stern. The natural interior provides a lovely contrast to the exterior, which looks like a top-quality factory finish. Try our revised and updated on-line Green Valley Boat Works Book Store and get a head-start on your first boatbuilding project! One look at that crystal clear water and you can see why this area was revered by Bill Mason and thousands of others since.
They accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express in either US or Canadian dollar accounts.
Full size plans including caning directions for the seats shown above can be ordered directly from Green Valley. Included are such topics as the secrets of the "Hidden Hardware System", as can be seen in the seat photo above, and the "No Staple" method of strip building. If you want a solo, but really need a small tandem, check out the Mattawa - I don't recall ever having seen such an overwhelmingly positive reaction to a new design. After seeing people at local waterways cartopping canoes and kayaks, and struggling to get them off the vehicles and into the water singlehanded, prompted me to design a replacement, and the 'EZ Canoe' idea was born. This is similar to the stitch and glue method used by other boatbuilders, but without the stitches or epoxy. The center hull section (occupant compartment) has a sealed hollow floor for added buoyancy.
Construction took a little less than a month, but only because I had other projects around the house that kept interrupting construction time. Also they did quite a bit of trim in Paulownia – a very lightweight timber originally from China but now being plantation grown in Australia and other countries. If it’s a cabin cruiser, then move the seats closer together for more comfort and great stability. Canoe seats mounted somewhere in the middle give a good balance between stability and responsiveness, because you can kneel when you need extra stability and sit for all other times. We promote self-direction by emphasizing the do-it-yourself culture, and we believe growing paddlesport participation advances wilderness protection.
Also, we are once again offering the Osprey S+G and the Kipawa S+G, featuring new, improved designs, in electronic format only. This is a great alternative when the wood strips are not the most attractive colour or grain.
The Recreational version (above left) can be built in either the traditional Voyageur style with the high ends, or in a Modern style with low ends. This is a must-have for anyone thinking of designing their own canoe, or anyone who just wants an understanding of why different canoes perform the way they do.


Noah's carries an extensive inventory of everything you need for 'your ark', and you'll find their knowledgeable staff very helpful in selecting the right products to complete your project. The most recent additions include a section detailing a very special removeable portage yoke system for the custom built solo canoe, and a section on repairing a damaged hull. For speed demons only: the Barracuda is John Winter's latest design, and maybe the fastest non-competition solo canoe you can build. Even if you aren't in the market for one of their beautiful (and under-priced!) cedar canvas canoes, you should see their canoe shelves, built on the same mould as the real canoes!
Weather conditions, heat and humidity, will affect the process application and curing times. The wood construction provides built-in hull flotation, and optionl, sealed, end compatments would further add to the overall buoyancy.
If the canoe plan didn’t include seat positions, then you need to calculate that position yourself.
When mounting seats for a balanced approach, mount them high enough to get your feet in and out easily. Ideally, with properly placed seats that account for the different weights of the paddlers, the loaded center of buoyancy will equal the unloaded center of buoyancy. Part of our mission is promoting the protection and preservation of our federal, state and local lands. We also have The Shape of the Canoe by John Winters, which is an invaluable technical guide on CD-ROM for anyone who wants to design their own canoe or other paddle-powered watercraft - it even includes three design programs! Notice the sleek lines of this fast, quiet tripping canoe, as well as the graceful seat design, which is the perfect finishing touch for your hand built masterpiece. On the other hand, the 28' Racing version (above right) is a very modern, asymmetric hull, and is designed for pure speed! The Shape of the Canoe, in Adobe PDF format, plus a bonus of three design programs (KAPER, CANTRAC, and BEARBOAT) which are all used by John, are all on one CD-R, for both PC's and MAC's. They have everything from the strips to trim, all the power tools, and at least four brands of epoxy. The boat leaves virtually no wake, except for the paddle trail, and has proved to be quite effortless to paddle (or row if you so choose). Other than that, everything is very straightforward, and a strong, lightweight boat is the end result. To balance the seesaw, the heavier person usually sits nearer to the center than the lighter.
It's lightweight and 11 foot length provide good directional control, with ample storage area for whatever adventure you may have in mind.
Construction options include gussets, additional decking and fiberglassing of the bottom, for use in harsher environments. This behavior might have been at the bottom that some people thought the boat was tender where some experienced canoists thought stability was quite good even with the seats raised in height. So, if any of you have a classic heirloom cedar canvas canoe in need of repair or total restoration, this is a perfect winter project for Jack and his crew, and you will have your canoe back by next summer as good as new.
Anyway, I have posted the user’s email in full in the link to the Eureka page at the bottom of this section. If you are looking for a roomy, wilderness tripping canoe for that expedition you're planning, the Quetico, may be just what you're looking for. Just slip an end section into the dovetail guides of the center section, and twist the section clamps closed. It is a very fast, high-volume 18'4" flat water tripping canoe, and is sure to be a winner!
