WBSC - WBS, Pirogue, Plywood

The Plywood Canoe is a great boat building project for families or groups of 2 to 4 people. When completed, the canoe is 15' 3" in length with a 31 ½" beam. It can be paddled with kayak or canoe paddles. Inexpensive to build using ordinary tools and materials, the canoe gives everybody access to boat building and a boat. The course runs three days with an optional day of painting on the fourth day. This boat is built using plywood sheets and dimensional lumber and uses many of the techniques used in building larger boats including lofting. This boat is suitable for one adult, an adult and child, two children, or an adult and a couple of dogs. We will provide all of the materials, tools, and instructors to keep you and your friends and family on the right course. We will build up to three boats in a weekend, and group size is limited to four. You take the boat home with you on your car top or in the back of a pickup. Please contact us with any questions at WoodenBoatSchool@AMMFL.Org or ask for Wooden Boat Director Ron Dierolf at 850-653-2500 to schedule.
