Plans And Contacts

We have no affiliations whatsoever with any of the following suppliers. Well that's not entirely true, some of them have become good friends over the years, but what I mean is I'm not on the take from any of 'em! All can provide you with plans and an endless source of inspiration.

If you wish to contact me and you're not from the tax office, or even if you are from the tax office and you want to talk boats, you may do so by email using the "contact" link in the column on the right.

All of the stuff on this site is the copyright of Peter Hyndman and Michael Storer, but you're welcome to use any of it, even if you think you can make a fortune out of it. Of course if you do make a fortune, you'd be welcome to share it with us.

In the meantime, for advice regarding custom designs or building assistance, please visit one of Michael Storer's websites. For plans, kits, hardware and building materials contact any of the following suppliers.

If you would like to own a Eureka Canoe, but don't want to build it yourself, there are a number of experienced builders at your disposal.

A Great Place to Start:

The Eureka Canoe is a fabulous way of starting into boatbuilding, with simple construction and no fiddling with rigging and rudders.

At the beginning there seems to be so much to learn and so much information just doesn't make any sense that a first time builder doesn' t know quite where to go for advice.

After you have mastered the stitch and tape method of construction used in the Eureka,if you feel need to learn a bit more about other boat building techniques, the PDRacer exists to teach you everything!

The construction methods employed in the building of the Oz PDRacer are identical to those employed in larger boats such as the Storer Rowboat or the Goat island Skiff, but at half the length, the amount of work is significantly less.

Even if you don't want to build a smaller boat, the plan set contains almost a hundred pages of illustrated instructions on how to complete each task, and as a primer for the bigger boat, is well worth the $20.00 cost. Plans are available from all the above agents.
