Rod Coates - Canoe

Posted on March 23 2012

Ted and Joan: My son teaches at a private school that requires the students to do a lot af paddling. I came across your 1/12 scale kits in a magazine and thought I'd give the Redbird a try. I am pleased with the results, as well as with your on-line help. I messed up when cutting the outside stems, and eventually had to use oak laminate. Most people would probably carry a cooler in the canoe, but my son's school uses food boxes in their 26 and 28 foot canoes. I built a food box out of scrap and found some 1/12 scale pop and beer cans for it. Hopefully I can find some place to build a full size canoe. Thanks very much for an enjoyable time. Rod Coates Thunder Bay, Ontario
