Common Sense Canoe
by Ken Abrahams 
I built this Willamette Canoe from Common Sense Boats. (I also bought plans for a canoe from Glen-L but they were not stitch and glue.)  It is all 1/4" Luan plywood, with varnish finish over epoxy. I carried it on top of my van to New Mexico for the grandkids. It first floated near Santa Fe at Cochiti Reservoir.
