Fiddlehead canoe

“Inspired by Mathew Murphy’s article, ‘A Solo Canoe for Double Paddle’ (Small Boats 2007), a 10′6″ version of Harry Bryan’s Fiddlehead is now being paddled around the bays and beaches of the Bucklands Peninsula” in New Zealand, writes Tony Hinde. Named for his grandmother’s “favorite words of disparagement,” O FIDDLE D D went together in less than six months of part-time construction and fit the bill for “an easily managed, short-term, self-build craft” that can be walked to the nearby beach when conditions and inclination allow.
