920 quid is a lot of money, but does it weigh up to the satisfaction of making and using your own hand-made canoo?
It's a gorgeous piece of art!

Thank you Marco....it's a bit of cash but if you were to just buy one the most basic ones start at $3000 and the kyaks go up to $5000 or better depending on the size and patterns.
You can't buy a cheep used ALUM / PLASTIC canoe here for $900 unless your lucky to find a deal.

I'LL BE GETTING BACK ON THIS BUILD SOON ; The canoe is done except varnishing which I'll be doing on and off over the next month.
