Here are some shots of my kids and I with our new canoe Imp (green) and Jim's canoe built earlier from the same moulds Little Monkey (blue).

Jim took the photos, which are far better than the ones I took, though I've got more if you can make use of them including a variety of construction shots.

These boats were built to drawings I worked up for Jim last year, and now we have two of them off the moulds, I don't think there's any doubt they work well and don't look half bad. Some day I'll make the plans available.

The next project is a 14-15ft sailing canoe that I'm designing and which Jim plans to build once his summer house project is completed. '
