Macgregor Canoe

Today (7-26-20) is the day after many hours and years of life, that I get to finally launch my new canoe.

It is a 13′ 7″ MACGREGOR canoe designed by Iain Oughtred. The boat is all wood; built with glued lapstrake Okume plywood planking (the garboards do have a layer of carbon-fiber laminated to them), Cherry longitudinal’s and floor timbers, the sole is Ceder, the keel and stems are laminated Philippine Mahogany.

I hope to paddle on the lakes in the area and do some canoe camping with it.

Hope you all like it like I do.
