Hi, Its' been a while since I've posted, work, travel, and a kitchen remodel kinda tie you up a bit. Finally got back to the chainsaw, man I miss the smell of its exhaust. I've been wanting to do one of these for a while. This is just a test for the dugout outrigger canoe and sail event that has been postponed for odd reasons.

This is going to be a small one only 7 ft long, similar to one I saw in a New Guinea anthropology book that was used for fishing offshore, but within the reef. But I decided to do a croc head canoe prow to honor Gman's recent conquest! The size was also dictated by where I hope to eventually hang it for display.

It is roughed out ready for finish carving. I have it propped up and loosely "rigged" with HomeDepot tie-down cord---ie nylon cord.










I've finished a couple of projects, but have to slow down a bit to take some pictures.

Thanks for looking.

You're crazy! Do you think this one will float you? If you try, I wanna see pics! I think you need to put it in the water once before you hang it in the house. I can see the "crowbar" in the pics, was that one of the toolz you used to do the work, or was it mostly saw? Always wild stuff from you Johnny! I'm glad you posted.

Very nice JP. The canoe is quite interesting... I for one would like to see more pics. Your stuff is always interesting though!
7 feet long? What will you do with it when it's done? (Sorry if I missed that before)

That's a very cool, ambitious, original project, P. And one of the keynote pieces of a lot of great golden-era tiki temples. Looks great.

Very cool!! I have been wanting to make one these for a long time and you beat me to it. If you try floating it don't forget your PFD (personal floatation DRINK)!!
