STRIP-BUILT CANOE


Tags: Glen Rahtz, Canoe

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.
