Nymph - Canoe


Although it is a pocket-sized little boat, the Nymph shares a lot in common with other canoes. My intention with this design was to build as minimal and easy to handle a single person boat as possible. Using 1/8” thick hardwood strips, I’ve kept the weight down to about 15 pounds. There is not much to this boat, it is a hull with gunwales, one thwart and a seat, but it does the trick for getting a small (<150 lbs) paddler out on the water.
