Stun your fellow pleasure crafters twice with the Taiga Wilderness Tripper Wooden Canoe Kit. The first shock will come when they see the exquisite wood veneer beauty of this 17’ specimen slicing through the water. The second shock will come when you tell them you built it.

Designer John Lockwood has created the first stitch and glue canoe kit that incorporates traditional tripper canoe design, meaning the re-curved bow and stern and tumble home are in effect; something not found in mass produced plastic and fiberglass boats. Construction is said to be pretty easy, with pre-cut panels quickly wiring up around five temporary frames. Lastly, you can’t beat the Anchormanesque awesomeness of resting your rump on wicker seats as you paddle past the envious mobs. [Purchase]
