I had planned on building a boat before my next deployment but I believe I am going to do a trial run on a pirogue. I am going to use some "chinese blueprints" off a buddy of mine's but build it stitch and glue instead of tack and glue. I want to try the process before going big. I can get two sheets of 1/4 and two 8 foot clear 2x2 and get started. Anybody ever built a pirogue?
