PROSPECTOR CANOE

Gerald Ely and his son, David, built this 16' x 35" Chestnut Prospector canoe. They built her using red and white cedar strips covered with 6 oz fiberglass cloth. The gunwales, seats, yoke and stems are of cherry. They used cherry and walnut for the decks, and covered the stems with brass half-round.
