Raven 14' Open Model Canoe

By popular request, we shortened the Selway Fisher 15'7" Raven to give a canoe easier to car-top on smaller vehicles.

She takes 2 adults plus camping gear. The hull has the Raven family's 3 panels per side plus a flat bottom panel and tumblehome giving her maximum beam down at the waterline.

Details of the full-size Selway Fisher 15'7" Raven canoe can be found on the Selway Fisher Design web site.

Construction uses 0.4 - 0.75mm aircraft modelling plywood and the tack and tape (stitch and tape) construction method. The plans give full-size plank shapes for the model. The planks are cut out of the thin plywood using scissors and held together with Sellotape before the seams are glued together using a PVA glue
