With Charlotte up for sale and in need of a nice matching paddle, I started on a feathering paddle made from Sitka Spruce.
I put the patterns back on the paddle blades and retraced the shape so I could work it with a spoke shave.
Once I have finished carving the paddle, it will be varnished with many coats of Captain's varnish.

These pages are mainly about boats which are light enough for the crew to carry up a beach, but we can't resist this photo of Patrice at the helm of Caredig, a Ness Yole beautifully reinterpreted by Charpentiers Reunis of La Ciotat as a plywood kit. Designers of sail-and-oar boats have to reach a compromise between the ability to sail to windward on exposed waters, or the different characteristics that make the boat a joy to row all day.
It's usually possible to put a small sailing rig on a boat intended purely for rowing, and it'll go beautifully with the wind coming from the side. Every lover of small boats has their own view about the perfect sailing-rowing compromise.
Several adventurous coastal cruises have been made in boats about 17 feet long, 47 in wide, pointed at both ends, with the seaworthy hull shape of a miniature whaleboat.
In 1874-75, Nathaniel Bishop rowed a boat of roughly these dimensions 2500 miles from Quebec to the Gulf of Mexico. Not many years later the naval architect Frederick 'Fritz' Fenger sailed a similar but more sophisticated boat along the Antilles island chain. Many people feel that the best rowing-sailing boat is a dory, not the old Grand Banks fisherman's dory but one of its sophisticated descendants with a rounded cross-section.
The Swampscott dory, for example, was very popular in the 19th century as a light sailing boat for racing in sheltered waters. The websites and books listed here include much about rowing-sailing boats, and every summer you can see them taking part in raids and regattas.
When we say sailing canoe, we don't mean a Canadian canoe with a temporary bolt -on sailing rig but the dedicated sailing craft which evolved from it. Intermediate boats like High Horton's 15 feet 5 inch Bufflehead give gentle fun on gentle days or excitement when the wind gets stronger, unless you drop the masts and sails and get the paddle out instead. One person can sleep aboard the bigger canoes when they're drawn up on the beach or even at anchor. The Canadian canoe has been around ever since North American native peoples discovered that birch bark and spruce could be turned into a boat, and canoe users have always helped their craft along on downwind trips by holding up a bush or a blanket. In the 19th century, leisure users started to put a very small mast and sail onto canoes and short wide kayaks. For racing she can carry 84 square feet of sail, which is a lot for such a slim boat but the short masts and square sails mean that the centre of effort is low compared to a modern racing dinghy.
She is suitable for cruising on lakes, estuaries and wide rivers but a bit light and open for the sea. Some 19th century canoeists covered the entire boat with a deck so that no water would enter in a capsize.
He had the builder give her a self-bailing cockpit which drains through a centreboard case.
In the late 19th century in Britain and the eastern United States, the sailing canoe was nearly as popular as the bicycle.
The canoe sailing boom started because people were inspired by small, light boats with small sailing rigs. In a light and simple sailing canoe you can either take the sails down and start paddling, or sit up on the side deck and lean your body weight to windward.
Smaller sailing canoes designed to be equally good for paddling and sailing are often called 50:50 designs. If you're interested in building a small or medium sailing canoe, something you can pick up and carry, have a look at the 12 foot Wee Rob design from Iain Oughtred, the 12 foot 8 inch Piccolo by the late Bob Baker, the Oughtred MacGregor which can be anything from 13 feet 6 inches to 17 foot 3 inches long, and the 15 foot 5 inch Bufflehead. The unstable racing canoe survives as the International 10 Square Metre sailing canoe (IC10). Although not as fast as a racing catamaran, sailing canoes seem even faster because you are perched on a narrow plank with water streaking past underneath. Smaller extreme sailing canoes, 16 feet long and 30 inches wide, are still sailing on lakes and bays in North America.
For plans for a plywood 16-30 sailing canoe like the two-masted version in the photo, contact John Summers. The Victorians had ballasted sailing canoes for cruising on exposed waters, for example some of Warington Baden Powell's Nautilus designs and Linton Hope's Coma China. If those words make you think of endless forests, wolves and snow, you may be surprised to hear that much of Scandinavia has wonderful summers with very long days, a long, beautiful and empty coastline, and many islands, lakes and rivers. The sailing canoes in the Swedish classes listed below can be paddled short distances, or rowed, but they're usually sailed.
D-class and E-class canoes are very expensive and too heavy to transport on the roof of your car, but the D-class in particular is seaworthy and some designs let you sleep aboard in summer. The same website also has a gallery of lines drawings for sailing canoes of all sorts, dating from 1870 to 1992 and ranging from heavy sea cruisers to the sort of lightweight racing machine that falls over as soon as you put the mast up.

This allows the blade that is out of the water to be on edge against the wind while taking a stroke.

An open boat 22 ft 7 in long, she is large enough to carry six people in comfort but will float in knee-deep water. A short, wide, heavy boat won't glide through the water with the occasional touch on the oars. However you'll need fast reactions and the ability to swim, and if you want to go upwind or directly downwind it's probably time to take the mast down. This is usually a centerboard or daggerboard, raised and lowered through a vertical slot in the hull. Built for him by WF Stevens of Marblehead, Massachusetts, his Yakaboo had very little freeboard and was double-ended, so perhaps we can call her a sailing canoe even though she was too wide to paddle easily. Other well-known yacht and multihull designers with a fondness for sailing canoes include Frederick Fenger, Uffa Fox, John Gardner, Phil Bolger, Jim Brown, Iain Oughtred and the Gougeon brothers.
The Miller 18 drawn here was a contender in the Everglades Challenge 2012 and has just enough room for two people to spend the occasional night under the foredeck.
At first these were gentle little craft up to about 15 feet long that you could sail downwind, or across the wind, while seated inside the cockpit. The cruising sails area can easily be reefed to reduce their area, and if the wind gets too strong or Shelduck is to be paddled directly upwind, her masts can be taken down on the water.
The centreboard can be moved fore and aft to change the centre of lateral resistance, which means no rudder is needed. The simplicity of the early sailing canoe was left behind as designs evolved in two directions, either towards more seaworthiness or towards racing speed on flat water.
Their sailing canoes were made even wider and fitted with complex and efficient sailing rigs. Today you can still find the extreme types of sailing canoe if you look hard enough (see below) but it's the simple, moderate sailing canoes that are enjoying a revival. It was easy to take them out, you could sail in only a few inches of water without worrying about rocks or scaring away the wildlife.
However if you want to sail a canoe to windward, especially on a windy day, you need to do something to resist the wind pressing on your sail.
Some have a deck to keep them from sinking in rough water or when heeled over, and we regard that as almost essential if they are to be used at sea.
Plans for these are available from Jordan Boats (plans for Wee Rob and MacGregor, pre-cut kits), Canoe Sailing Magazine (Bufflehead plans) and either Baker Boatworks or WoodenBoat magazine for Piccolo. This looks like a very skinny racing dinghy, with a sliding seat which enables the sailor to sit a long way out from the side of the hull. Some Scandinavian sailing canoes are the size and weight of small dinghies, others are miniature yachts carrying over 400 pounds of lead on the bottom of the hull, like the one illustrated here.
They can have either a cruising rig with two masts and relatively small sails or a racing rig for use near a sailing club, with a single tall mast and a high-tech sail. Most of the hull is built of plywood, except for the sharply angled forward portion of the bottom, which is planked in double, staggered layers of plywood in narrow strips. The signature lapstrake-planked motorboats of the Thompson company, produced in the 1950s and `60s.

Francis Herreshoff's double bladed paddle design that is published in his book Sensible Cruising Designs. Once I roughed out the shape of the paddle blades on the band saw I routed out a shape to add a mahogany tip.
The shaft tapers toward each paddle blade so that the shaft ends up as an oval at each end. I had a two piece carbon fiber paddle that was shorter in length that weighed about 25 ozs. The Ness Yole is primarily a sailing boat, with a solid timber mast and gaff to carry two large sails, but if the wind dies it can be rowed by up to six people.
It may occasionally carry a small sailing rig in fine weather but has nothing underwater to resist leeway. A sufficiently stable shape in cross-section to carry a very small sailing rig during perfect sailing weather.

His Maria Theresa, shown here in a close encounter with an alligator, was 14 feet long and 28 inches wide, only a little wider than a kayak. A traditional boat raid is a gathering of similar boats which race from one place to another using oar and sail, usually over several days. It's very cute, is fun to sail in nice weather on sheltered waters, and paddles well if there's no wind. In fine summer weather in Sweden and Finland, sailors often stop in a sheltered location, put up a canvas boom tent, and sleep aboard their 18 to nearly 20 foot Scandinavian sailing canoes. She is 17 feet long by 39 inches wide, which makes it easier to move her with a short pair of oars than a paddle.
Compared to an International Laser sailing dinghy she has 5% more sail area and 27% less beam. Racing enthusiasts found that wider canoes, flatter underneath, made the best sail racers; and that a canoeist could use a much larger sail if he tied a plank across the top of the canoe and sat on the upwind end.
They carry big sails to match the ballast, so just like the smaller canoes you can sit in the cockpit in light winds, but you'll want to sit up on deck in gusty conditions or to go to windward so that your body-weight can help keep the boat upright.
Even when the centerboard is retracted, the slot creates enough drag to spoil a rower's day.
His book Alone in the Caribbean (published by George Doran, 1917, various re-prints) is available free online at Craig O'Donnell's The Cheap Pages. It's easier to join in than it is to organize your own adventure trip, and the entry fee sometimes covers food and accommodation at each stop. Her sail area can be reduced at sea, but under full sail she is a wet, wet ride for experts only. In the quest for speed and status some had iron or lead weights attached to the bottom to help stability.
In America, William Clements has built a number of high-quality wooden reproductions of the Victorian classics. These canoes are fitted with a sitting-board so you can get your weight to windward without dragging your backside in the water like an International Laser sailor. Around 1960 the class regulations were changed and from then and until 2007 the minimum weight, ballast included was 235kg.
Two or three or four sailing canoes will often go cruising together, mooring in the same spot to spend the night, and stretching a tarpaulin over the cockpit (a boom tent) for shelter. That is an LF Herreshoff dp canoe (as is Sprig) but not necessarily the one in the black and white photo.
As sailing boats, they both have centerboards of which only a stub is shown in these drawings.
The center crammed with inflated air bags which can be adjusted to leave room for one crew, or two crew, or crew plus a heavy load of camping equipment. They often had a small mast and sail for touring, and a larger mast and sail which they used in club races, sitting on the edge of the canoe and leaning backwards to keep the canoe upright against the force of the wind in the sail. In 2007 we adjusted the regulations, mainly concering the minimum weight, it was raised to 360kg hull and ballast". Enough freeboard to row in rough water without starting to fill with water, not so much as to make it the plaything of high winds.
I'm guessing the one in the B&W photo was built either by LFH himself or by Bror Tamm of Lawley's for LFH. Anecdotes of the Larchmont, Port Washington, Knickerbocker, American, Riverside, and Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht clubs. The younger Herreshoff's designs emphasize artistic perfection, where his father--Nathanael--had emphasized engineering perfection.
