YUKON PERE Plans - 15-foot 10-inch long, 32-inch wide plywood tandem double-paddle canoe.
This boat is the best in the 'Yukon' family for normal use by two paddlers. The beam is greater than the others to give more stability, and more load capacity for two adult paddlers and their gear. This design is the widest sixteen-foot canoe that it is practical to build from two pieces of plywood. It is also the maximum practical width for using a double paddle. The Pere can be used as a big single with the optional seating arrangement shown in the instructions. Pere (pronounced "pair") is French for father - this is the "Big Daddy" of the "Yukon" series.
