Building Your Kevlar Canoe : A Foolproof Method  0
Factory-built Kevlar canoes are light (35 pounds for a 17-Footer), strong (40% stronger than fiberglass canoes that weigh twice as much), fast, and maintenance-free. Moran's low-tech method for building these high-tech boats centers on the pink foam sheathing used on houses, a $5 plane, and drywall compound. The method is astonishingly easy and forgiving. The book provides complete plans and building instructions for a stable family canoe, a swift solo canoe, and a wilderness tripper. (Added: 12-Aug-2000 Hits: 1727) | Rate | Visit
