Here's a nifty canvas covered canoe from the old days. Our father built a similar canoe when we were about 10 years old. We still remember our adventures from a couple of overnight trips down Indiana's pristine Tippecanoe River.

This boat is designed to be quickly built by kids using modified Bolger/Payson "tack & tape" construction methods, with techniques that minimize the use of hazardous materials, and maximize suitable children's skills.
A friend told me the one sheet canoe "Dug" looks like "one of the 19th century English admiral's hats, turned upside down".
