|WEE LASSIE 10.5|
|FEATHER WEIGHT STRIPPER CANOE 11
SIMPLE WOODSTRIP CONSTRUCTION -- The cedar strip method of building is basically simple. Edge glue narrow cedar strips (bead and cove edges) over temporary station molds. Then fiberglass inside and out using Epoxy Plus Epoxy Resin. The result, a strong lightweight monocoque hull. Sand the epoxy, varnish and the cloth is transparent revealing a beautiful clear finished boat you will be proud of.
In a world that is rapidly getting overcrowded the Wee Lassie is the ideal vehicle to find the little spots all over the country where peace and serenity still reign. Instead of filling the air and water with pollution, fumes and noise, she quietly slides thru the environment, disturbing nothing. A no stress way to visit the streams, bays and wetlands. There is something about being the first one on a stream in the morning just before daybreak, when everything is still, and the drip from your paddle is the only sound, that just makes you feel good all over. They say it is never too late to have a happy childhood and I guess that is true.
|The light weight of the Wee Lassie makes her easy to carry, easy to car top, easy to portage. Her small size lets her go in places where a big canoe would be awkward. The use of a double paddle enables her to go upstream in extremely shallow water. Conditions like this severely restrict anything with a motor on it, but are just right for a ten foot six, twenty pound canoe that only takes a couple of inches to float in. Wee Lassie's sleek shape also makes her easy to paddle against the wind or across the wind.
