    Selway Fisher Canadian canoe plans

    I bought these plans from England for the making of a Selway Fisher canoe, but never opened them, as I was given the use of a canoe since then, in which I have had many adventures. (Even took it over Lake Te Anau up to the Glaisnock once and back.)
    Someone else may have an interest - they are very popular in the UK. On Facebook saw some Kiwis make two of these and then paddle around Northland in them. Anyway it looks like this, and is made from 4mm Marine ply and epoxy. You cut the sections out, wire them together and then epoxy the seams. Simple idea.
    These plans are for a 15ft-7inch version, Peterborough model. Its the right size for two hunters packs and gear and deer. (You can also make it longer if you want by stretching the measurements in the middle.)
    Heres a link to the builders in the UK: Canoes
    $70 and I''ll just post it out to you.
