This is the original 1992 design, first in the 'Yukon' series, and is sized for normal use by a single paddler, with thwarts placed to give good balance for occasional use as a tandem by two young paddlers facing the other way. I am looking for plans to build a nice stitch and glue or glued lapstake double canoe or decked canoe. I am about 5'-10" and 235 pounds, I would only paddle solo on quiet stretches of the New River near Blacksburg or on the lake. If you're not wedded to plywood, then the Chuckanut 12 would easily fit the bill, and would, of course, be cheaper, lighter and quicker to build than a similar plywood boat, like the Mill Creek.
I'm not stuck on plywood construction, I would also be interested in skin on frame designs. I am also planning to build a decked version, although it can be built as an open boat as well.
If I built a paddleboard all I can see is doing a lot of swimming, unless it's much easier than it looks I doubt a guy like me could learn.
From a practical standpoint a tiny paddleboat which is never intended to be used in difficult waters doesn't merit a deck.
If you forget the deck and add that weight back as a longer hull you'll get a better paddling boat.
On another note since this will be my first build, what about the quick canoe, seems it would be suitable for drifting down the river and fishing. Storer is an Australian and his Quick Canoe has absolutely no counterpart with any design I could find.
I posted that plan offering because it has a wealth of information about a particular S&G canoe design.
Paddleboat designs can't be haphazard and biased toward one strength at the expense of others.


For more detailed information about these designs please browse through our listing of recreational kayak designs. These plans come with a 50 page instruction book including photographs and illustrations for building the boat from 3 sheets of plywood.

I hope this isn't another one of those threads where someone wants to build an $800 boat for $200. The benefit is it is S&G the simplest and fastest technique for producing a hardshell canoe. Compare it with whatever else you can come up with like the Quick Canoe or any of the pirogue plans available. Paddlers, if they are fit, can only generate about ? HP for any length of time so having a hull that gives you the most pay back for yor ? HP of effort is the ideal.
A "recreational" kayak is intended for relaxed paddling around ponds, lakes, slow moving rivers and calm ocean. These full size plans include patterns for all the plywood parts to build your own wooden kayak. These plans include full size drawings of each form drawn individually so you may glue the patterns directly to your form material and cut out around the lines. These full size plans include patterns for all the plywood parts needed to build a stitch and glue kayak.
From a high volume version suitable for heavier paddlers, to a low deck suitable for shorter paddlers. These full size plans include patterns for all the plywood panels and forms needed to build a stitch and glue kayak.

These full size plans include patterns for all the forms needed to build a strip-built kayak. If the deck is too pronounced you'll have to cartop it right-side up where it can fill with rainwater.
The shorter models might be more practical to cartop, but you would have to build a rack cradle if you didn't want them right-side up. That may make it more likely to go straight but our canoes are usually set up to give some measure of manueverability and straight running without any add-ons. These original designs by Nick Schade are based on his lifetime of experience paddling kayaks and designing small boats.
And if you have to face the current and an adverse wind you want a boat that will do what you ask without requiring an exhausting amount of paddle strokes to make it go straight. Mine can be used with one or two persons, the only thing I don't like about it is that the two seats are close enough that the paddlers have to be in sync to not knock paddles. It's also a bit wider than the typical kayak but not so much so that the paddling is awkard. It wasn't an option when I built mine but now there are 'hybrid versions' with stitch and glue hulls and strip-planked decks--that might look pretty nice.
