CC14, July 2012, WouldWork (1st Boat)

Post by WouldWork » Mon Jul 16, 2012 11:06 pm

Hi all,

My first boat is complete, I know it's only a cc14, but I'm still proud of it. I want prospective builders to know that anyone with patience and a bit of passion can build their very own boat. I have no specific wood working skills, I just really wanted a nice canoe, and didn't want to pay $1000's for it. I have, during this build, caught the bug that inflicts most of you and I have already ordered plans for my next build.

It's so nice to look through the galleries at some of the masterpieces on here, I must say I was initially intimidated and reluctant to share my creation in light of the outstanding craftsmanship some of you have, but I have instead used what I've seen as inspiration and encouragement and I appreciate the support network this site/board supplies.

These plans are definitely under-priced when you factor in the support that comes with them. So on that note, thanks again, and here's my girl..

Regards

WouldWork, aka Cameron.

(hopefully I am doing the images correctly, first timer)

Very nice. If you can build a canoe, you can build any boat here. Nice piece of SS bling leading the way. :)

Hello Cameron,

VERY nice boat! The colors are great and that's a SERIOUS bollard on the bow.

Wow, such kind words, thanks guys. That's very encouraging.

As for my 'bling', the description for that bollard was - To suit boats 16 - 20 feet. To which I thought, that's perfect for my canoe!!

Guess I'll have to get an even bigger bollard for my next boat (HM19) so as to continue the excessive bling. Haha.

Thanks again.

Cameron.

Very nice boat, you almost can use that bling to say your prayer or to hunt sea vampires :P

Very nice canoe 8) I think that same bollard would handle a HM19 just as well, and I'm all for overkill. I've got a winch on the bow of my OD18, have only needed it twice so far, but it's there if we do :D
