To protect the front and bottom of the canoe from rocks, a narrow metal strip is applied to the hull.
With Instructables you can share what you make with the world, and tap into an ever-growing community of creative experts.
The outlines of the hull cross sections are drawn on sheets of plywood, particle board or MDF. Use the table saw with feather boards clamped to the guide and table to keep the strip thickness uniform. The strips used for the stems need to be steamed and clamped onto the stem forms then allowed to dry before gluing them together.
Once the hull is completely stripped it is time to trim the strips flush with the bow and stern stems. Fiberglass cloth is laid over the hull so that it extends just past the stems, then smoothed with a soft bristle brush.


Fiberglass cloth is laid inside the hull and held in place with clothes pins, then smoothed with a soft bristle brush. Gunnels are long strips of wood which are attached inside and outside to the top edge of the hull to give it rigidity when combined with the thwart. Really nice job,to buy a canoe like that one would dent the bank account for sure,but worth it. Welcome to Fyne Boat Kits, makers and suppliers of wooden boat kits, boat plans and boating equipment.

I didn't really expect to become a finalist, nor did I expect 146000 view in less the a month and a half. The wood strips alone are held together with glue and the hull eventually would swell and leak without the fiberglass or some sort of water proofing. Yes they do get scratched and banged up a bit, but since I built it I know how to repair it too.

The problem I had was that I cut mu own straps with a table saw and they were not very consistent in thickness, even along the length of the same strip.
The fiberglass cloth on inside and outside of the wood makes a laminated core structure which is very stiff and strong. Sure looking at the finish product gives me some satisfaction, but not nearly as much satisfaction as using it.
