Re: The Strippers Guide, David Hazen
You certainly can build a Micmac from Hazen's offsets, but you need to know that the state of the art of cedarstrip canoe building has far progressed from Hazen's early work. I suggest you get a copy of Ted Moore's Canoecraft and follow all of the instructions and especially the details in that book and use the rest of the Strippers Guide for a placemat or something. Seriously.
Be sure to check out my upcoming book: Satan's Sailboat--How the Flat-Bottomed Sharpie is a Clear Sign of the Coming Apocalypse, available soon on Kindle and in bookstores near you.
