Never get enough water time, and sometimes the wind doesn't blow, so here along with the tortured ply canoe, is a "Birder Kayak" from B & B yacht designs. The panel idea for my canoe came from the "moccasin" by B and B yacht designs, but I modified, fiddled, and designed my own.

Finished her bright, and I think she turned out kinda purty. Also the "Collapso" a yellow cardboard canoe, that we launched in the 4th of July weekend regatta at Rock Island is pictured... she was the proof of concept for my panel design, sunk after 250 yards.. not the design.. just the materials failed....
