I wish I had more pictures of this going together. This was made by using the Puddle Duck canoe plans from the Gil GilPatrick book. Only instead of using all the stations and stretching it 12', only a few of the stations were used and placed closer together. Because of the tight bends the strips had to have a bunch of relief cut in order to work. This has the same fiberglass reinforcement that a canoe would get. I made the seats smaller and caned them. It's actually very solid. My nephews use to sit in it when they were little.
