Book Overview

Build a Canoe with a Master Maine Guide After supervising the construction of more than 500 canoes during his nearly 30 years as an outdoor resources instructor in the Skowhegan, Maine, school system, Gil Gilpatrick shares his voice of experience in guiding both novice and accomplished woodworkers in building a canoe with easy step-by-step instructions. This revised and expanded 2nd edition of BUILDING A STRIP CANOE includes plans and patterns for eight well-proven designs, most of which are Gil's own adaptations, and are accompanied by more than 100 photographs and illustrations. Also included are directions for making handwoven cane seats and attractive lightweight, stalwart paddles. Over many years of experimenting and refining his methods, Gil offers an extensive listing of sources for lumber, tools and supplies. His contemporary construction methods augment the traditional wood strips with fiberglass and WEST SYSTEM epoxy. From safety in the boat shop to repairs, Gil explains the shortcuts learned from experience. A Maine Guide, he uses his own canoes and tests their performance on the challenging Allagash River every summer.
