Sean Hartman’s skin on frame canoe
Sean Hartman found plans for a skin on frame canoe (SOF canoe) taken from an old book some time ago.
He writes: ‘I found these plans while researching your Cinderella canoe. They seem to have been taken from an old book entitled Canoes, Dinghies, and Punts: How to build a canvas canoe by E T Littlewood. One of the photos attached shows the transom hitch lashings I used for the ribbands and later the gunwales.’
Sean has reminded me that he obtained the drawings he used to build this boat from intheboatshed.net – see them at https://intheboatshed.net/2007/02/10/build-a-canvas-canoe/
This seems like a good opportunity to mention that the scans from Practical Boat Building for Amateurs by as written by D Neison and updated by Dixon Kemp I put up some time ago include another set of drawings and instructions for making a canvas canoe.
Look out for the sailing version of the Julie skiff. Click on the image for more
