15′ Chestnut canoe – Dave Taper

Dave is building a Western red cedar stripped ‘Chestnut’ canoe which will be sheathed in light weight glass fibre for enhanced durability. It was drawn by Ted Moores of Bear Mountain Boats and is 15′ in length and is named Bob’s Special, a ‘Chestnut’ classic, the original design having come from the 1950 Chestnut Canoe Co. catalogue. It’s a lightweight boat with plenty of room for gear, good for solo tripping. Click here for more info from the Bear Mountain Boats website.
