Ulua by William Manuel

When I built my first strip canoe some 30 years ago, I was astounded at the beautiful creature that resulted from a bundle of sticks and some staples.  It was an empowering experience for me as it has been for William Manuel in Maui, Hawaii.   Now just add some crystal clear water and some tradewinds, to complete the experience.
Many prospective builders feel that a stripper would require more skill than what they have, however I have found that plywood hulls are more prone to serious errors than a strip planked hull.
