The SnowShoe 12™ is a great first time project. Due to its size it is more like building a model than a real boat.

This is a fast, straight tracking solo canoe with great performance. Keeping the center of gravity low, using a thin foam cusion right on the bottom provides excellent stability. The result is a relaxing ride that requires practically no effort to travel miles with a double blade paddle (an easy to build design is included with the plans).

The prototype of this was featured in a five year museum tour, "Craft Today - Poetry Of The Physical". It is slated for display at the American Craft Museum in New York City.
