: HI,

: Looking to make a double. This will be my second build, the first being a
: cottage canoe from Moore's canoecraft - good fun.

: I am pretty inexperienced but physically active. Paddler weight is about 90
: and 70 kg (170-180cm hight), but likely to get young teenagers using it.
: Want to do more extended touring in fairly quiet water and sheltered
: bays/esturies - say waves to 1m. duration of trips probably max 5 days.

: I have narrowed the choice to about three: the Cape ann double -
: the Reliance from bear mountain
: and a Guilemott double (probably the geate Auk)-

: Any advice on these, and what I might not know (lots) about the differences.

: Oh yes - I was really looking for something around the 19' mark simply
: because of building space, but didnt get there.

: thanks dave

Might ask on the builder's forum, much more traffic there. I've only paddled singles so I'm no help :)
