Gypsy a 15 ft Strip-Built Canoe

  • Availability: In Stock
  • Pub No.: 5605

You don’t have to steam bend any ribs to build this sturdy, light-weight canoe. Construction is modern and simplified using plywood forms.

There are no bent ribs in this fifteen-footer; edge-nailed strip construction is used with plywood bulkhead moulds; the same type construction as is being so successfully used now aboard even large boats to give all the lightness, strength and grace associated with round-bilged boats without the trouble of steam bending
