Introduction: Free Skin on Frame Canoe

Picture of Free Skin on Frame Canoe

This is a skin on frame canoe I built for free it is 9 feet long and would be a kayak if it had a deck. I built it from 4in strapping,some heavy tarp,lots of screws,and staples. Thanks for looking!! Please comment,like and vote!!

Curious if you have tested this yet?

Yah once I kind of scratched the idea once winter came!! It did track very straight but seemed very tippy to someone who has never paddled a kayak AKA Me!! I am planning a much nicer kayak...

Nope I have'nt tested it yet but I filled with water and there was only a small leak at the top of the gunnel. I tried to build it as tough as I could!!

Very heavy duty - Any pictures of it afloat?
