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. Neither the service provider nor the domain owner maintain any relationship with the advertisers. 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. In case of trademark issues please contact the domain owner directly (contact information can be found in whois).
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! 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. 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. 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.
It is a very fast, high-volume 18'4" flat water tripping canoe, and is sure to be a winner!
