NWC Passage Solo - Free Canoe Plan
If you've admired the Merlin but wished for a solo with rocker, look no further. The Passage Solo gives you two inches of bow and an inch of stern rocker. Differential rocker provides maneuverability in heavy water, yet tracks when you lay the hull flat. If you're ready to build a solo canoe, but don't have the time or space for a stable-full of boats, the NorthWest Passage Solo will see you down the creek or take you on a week-long portage and paddle excursion.
NorthWest Canoe distributes full size NorthWest Passage Solo canoe plans electronically (via PDF download) to promote wood strip canoe building. We do not collect a dime in putting these plans in your hands. However, we do ask that you support paddlesports with a contribution of ten-dollars to one or all of our partners in paddling. Increase your contribution by $10 increments, just change the quantity. It feels good.
