Does anyone know where a set of plans for a pirogue can be downloaded or purchased?

Frenchie,

I have built an Uncle John's, and it doesn't get much easier. I have also heard nothing but good things about Jim's as well.

Good luck and have fun!

Thank you, for the update. I hope mine turns out as well as yours. I hope that I can get started as soon as it stops rainning here in OK.

The other advantage, to the rain, is, that I will not have to turn the AC on. It is keeping things cool. :)

Thanks again,

Erick

I built a Uncle Johns and it was very easy, I did use plywwod. But know I'm going to build a period one. Paul you said once that you had a recipe for a period coating. Is it pine tar, linseed oil and turpintine? Also has anyone ever heard of covering one with canvas and then painting it on? A friend of mine build a scow and he did that. It looks real good.

Thank you Walt, Clark. I did try to put some thought in my plans and it's good to hear they've been well recieved. My instructions do call for using plywood, glue and modern fasteners, but I think the builder will also find the dimensions, angles and principles I set forth useful in building with the more period proper materials.

Frenchie, email me your address bluheron48@comcast.net , and I'll be happy to send you a copy for your review. If you don't like it, send it back. If you do like it send me back a check for $15.00.

I hope Paul will respond with his formula. In the meantime, the Wooden Boat Store suggests making it "...from 1/2 pt pine tar, 1/2 pt japan drier, 1 qt boiled linseed oil, and 1 qt turpentine, all available from your local hardware. Some folks suggest you simply use equal parts of each."

Best regards,

Brent
