Are the strips cove and bead? What kind of glue do you use? Why aren't there internal ribs?
Joe O's Channel (20 days ago)
Bead and cove yes. And this type of canoe construction does not require ribs at all.

Very nice. I am building a kayak right now but a canoe is really what I want to build. These just look fantastic. Excellent work.

Love to see the real deal! In 53 years 22 canoes i do a little different. Current 18ft-6" Jensen style(except true center is moved to 1 foot astern). Strongback is all "T"- slotted metric extrusions. Forms ,strongback, and canoe are supported by (2) 1/2" 1045 dowels bow&stern. Dowel holes(45mm apart) are plugged in final step after shell is removed from jig. This jig is2500$ of slick design. It rotates in 10 degree steps(rotary indexer each end. Can build 2ft to 24ft long canoes with same sliding JIG, by just simple adjustment.
