Model of Simplicity Canoe

This was the test model for confirming the building sequence for the full sized prototype canoe and also confirming the proper dimensions.  The build of the model also tested the “folding mold” for shape of hull.

The test model completed. A miniature version of the full sized canoe.
Rigged and ready to sail. Uses Hobie sail rig and Hobie Mirage Drive. Drive doubles as lateral resistance.
Ready for propulsion from Mirage Drive and steered by lines to rudder from cockpit.

  1. I’m intrigued by your very attractive canoe design. It seems like it would be a good choice for us “seasoned” boaters. I’ll be interested to learn when plans are available.
