Everyone seems to love this little boat. Building one of Iain Oughtred’s designs has been a real pleasure — his plans are superb and to my eye at least are a work of art on their own. She performs really well, just out paddling, fishing or taking on some easy rivers. I am thinking of adding a small sprit rig for light airs. Stability is limited so this could be interesting!

Growler is our new, highly versatile transom-stern cruising canoe, and “big sister” to our popular and highly acclaimed 12 ft. solo canoe, Newt. Growler is based on the same hull form as Newt, but is capable of carrying considerably larger loads, including up to 3 passengers.

Growler displays excellent performance with canoe paddles, and also oars, with a small skeg added to the stern for superior tracking while rowing. And, for extended cruising, she features a transom for mounting a small electric or gasoline outboard motor.

He made the gunwale and seats from sprice, and the rails, stems, and breasthooks from koa. He made the paddle from Portuguese cypress, spruce, and sugi cedar.  This photograph was taken on New Year's Eve at Reeds Bay on the Big Island in Hawaii.

I started designing her in June of 2008. I had to put her up each fall to work on Christmas presents among other projects, but launched her this past weekend. Features include an hourglass football, maple burl decks, maple veneer stripes on the gunwales, no staple construction (I bungee'd each strip to the previous one and let it dry), carved mahogany and walnut seat and yolk and sunburst pattern in the caning of the seats. Now I need to convert my utility trailer to a boat trailer so I don't beat her up on the top of my car.

Glen Rahtz has been busy: he built three canoes and launched an outboard skiff that he restored over the course of 2010-2011. The new solo canoe featured here was designed by Glen to be "versatile: fast and stable to handle large wakes on the Ohio River or enjoy a long trip on a calm river or lake." Strip-built of red cedar and redwood sheathed in polyester fiberglass, the trim is ash, and the decks are black walnut (which was salvaged from firewood). The lakes in Ohio state parks as well as the Ohio River will be the canoe's home waters.

Hugh Groth has built seven canoes but this is the first strip-built one, and the first one he designed himself. He designed it specifically for he and his wife to use together, moving the stern seat forward to improve balance. Hugh says it tracks well, is surprisingly fast, and comfortable with its curved cane seats. Hugh adds that he would love to hear from anyone interested in building one of these.
