The loops of line on the four corners of the cart are used to strap baggage or the kayak to the cart,  and to attach the cart to the deck of the kayak. Previously I had built an experimental paddle out of carbon fiber and balsa that has been partially successful. The blades of the paddle are very thin but were formed over an 8″ diameter tube to to give them strength. The conversion of the canoe I built into an outrigger sailing canoe got me hooked on outriggers, so I had to design and build a better one.
The hull is once again symmetrical front to back so there are two identical bottom panels and four identical side panels. The panels are temporarily taped together with duct tape then glued together with thickened epoxy covered by a strip of fiberglass tape.
Next the inside of the hull is coated with epoxy and the floor of the cockpit is reinforced with a layer of fiberglass. After an hour of cutting with my old underpowered router I decided to send an AutoCAD file of the foils to my foam guy. I peel the peelply off the foils and trim the excess fiberglass from the trailing edges on the tablesaw and the foils are perfectly shaped. Since I sail in the San Francisco Bay and there aren’t many beaches, the crossbeams fold on the starboard side to make it easier to access docks. This boat is pretty fast when the wind picks up, and pretty wet – the leeboard kicks up a rooster tail. Once the side panels and bottom panel were epoxied together, the hull was ready to assemble. Once the inside of the hull was sealed, the kayak was turned over and the exterior of the hull was fiberglassed.
After the epoxy cured the kayak was turned over and the deck was trimmed even with the sheer clamps with a hand saw. I’ve now had the chance to test the Huck Finn Canoe several times, and I was definitely wrong about the stability. I was also concerned about being able to get back in the boat after a wet exit, especially because of the deck height. I like designing and building things, so I decided to try to design a boat that I could build in two days with indigenous materials sustainably sourced near the headwaters of the Mississippi (you know – Home Depot in Minneapolis) and a few hand tools.
I’ve added bulkheads to the hull, front and rear decks, and framed the front hatch where my bike goes.
It is hard to take photos while applying epoxy, so this is a brief post on fiberglassing the inside of the hull and the bowboard slot.
Thickened epoxy is applied to the top edges of the  side panels (which are actually the bottom edges since the hull is being built upside down) and the bottom panel is bonded to the side panels.
The plan is to build the boat using 1″ thick EPS (expanded polystyrene) foam with fiberglass and epoxy on the inside and outside. Of totally the systems which make upward type A Sternwheel boat the paddlewheel is the one most ofttimes take. XXV items There are only a few paddlewheel steamboat theoretical account kits worth mentioning model paddle wheel boat plans.

The Greenland paddle I made as part of the cart has ended up being one of my favorite paddles. The shaft was made by wrapping two layers of unidirectional carbon fiber, one layer of biaxial carbon fiber, and one layer of fiberglass around a 1″ aluminum tube that had four wraps of wax paper around it.
It is heavy and strong, and works well with outrigger canoes that are sailed and only occasionally paddled. I am going to remove the foam from the center and pour epoxy with filler into the foils to add strength, but haven’t yet.
The two halves of the hull are bolted together, The crossbeams are lashed to the main hull, and the floats are lashed to the crossbeams. I temporarily taped everything together with duct tape, then filleted all the joints with thickened epoxy and covered the fillet with a strip of fiberglass. Everything was allowed to cure overnight, and the next day the bulkheads were filleted and taped in place and the bulkheads and inside of the hull was sealed with epoxy. I ran the fiberglass past the ends of the bow and stern, then trimmed it even with the plywood once the epoxy gelled. I used an external sheer clamp so the fiberglass on the deck could run over the sheer clamp and be trimmed even with its bottom edge. Then the kayak was turned right side up and the edge of the deck was rounded with a plane and rough sandpaper. If I were smart I would fly to Minneapolis, buy a kayak, paddle to New Orleans, sell the kayak, and fly home. I then transfered the hull and panel layouts into AutoCAD where I completed the more detailed design drawings. The bottom panel is trimmed flush with the side panels, and all edges are given a slight radius so the fiberglass will drape over the hull properly. The advantages are: EPS is easy to work with, the hull will have good impact resistance, the EPS will provide flotation, and it is lightweight.
The fiberglass will delaminate from the EPS where there is high stress, and this will weaken the boat.

Up lots of plans and photos over the years and plan to build a model of her using Hartman’s hull. I may also add attachments so my spare paddle can be used as a crossbeam for small outriggers.
The construction method of the main hull is the same as for the kayak in the previous post.
I also fiberglass the floor of the cockpit and a few inches up the sides to add strength in this area.
The next day I sanded the ends, then wrapped two strips of fiberglass over each end, covered with waxed paper, and clamped boards over the waxed paper. In fact, when I tried to tip over to see if I could re-enter from the water, I had a hard time getting it to tip.

The boat was practically dry inside when I turned it upright, and I was able to jump back in on the first try with no difficulty.
The mast is stepped on the deck and supported by a compression strut to the bow and a shroud to each side.
When preparation to build an authentic boat model based on historic facts it’s highly.
I wanted something that could be used as a luggage cart and a kayak cart, and was lightweight and compact.
After it cured I slid the shaft off of the aluminum tube, cut it to length, and clear coated it.
The depth of the foils can be adjusted by raising and lowering them in the cassettes, and the cassettes rotate on the crossbeams so they kick-up if they hit something. One has to roll to about 80 degrees before it goes over – I think this is because of the high, flat sides. Of course we know the answer – Huck would hang out on an island until a raft floated by, jump on, and be on his way. I have moved the paddling position back into the pilothouse – decided shifting weight from position to position would not be practical. The lower portion will not be attached to the mast, but the luff will be reinforced so it can be tensioned. On a very windy day while paddling from San Francisco to Oakland I broke a blade while trying to keep from broaching while surfing waves in a heavy sea canoe.  So the paddle is good for fast paddling on smooth water, but not acceptable for rough water. The underside of the deck was sealed with epoxy, and it was bonded to the hull with thickened epoxy. We haven’t had much wind lately so I do not know how the wind will affect performance. Since I live nowhere near the Mississippi River this will not work for me, and anyway it is doubtful that derelict rafts are still as plentiful on the Mississippi as they were in Huck’s day. In the sketch above the front view shows both mast sections and the full sail, while the side view shows one mast section and the top sail. This will allow the lower portion to be reefed around the boom or raised from inside the pilothouse as there will be no need to deal with collars, sail slugs or a bolt rope.

The portion of the sail above the gaff will be the storm sail and will rarely be rolled onto the boom. I’ve searched all over the SF Bay Area and the highest density EPS I can find is 2lbs.
