Jim McQuaide and Eric Schade spent August of 2008 building canoes at the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, Maine. Eric built the Schoodic 14 design, while Jim built a Schoodic 17. Both designs are Eric’s designs and plans and finished canoes are available at Eric’s website. The canoes are stitch-and-glue with 5mm sapale marine plywood and epoxy. The rails and seats were made from ash.
