Re: The Strippers Guide, David Hazen
I helped David Hazen move back in the '70's after he married. I have two copies of the "Strippers Guide" but as they're all in storage at the moment I can't be of immediate help.
I bought the second book when I saw my first set was on cheap newsprint that wasn't going to age well and I planned to someday build me a 14' Micmac. I hate to see that it's thirty odd years and I haven't gotten around to it yet.
http://www.abebooks.com/ is a good source of second hand bookstores that can provide a copy of out of print books. I googled David a year or so back and I know he's still around, but if you can't find him, I have a set of all the templates that I can eventually unearth and help you with.
Given that canoe design began with Native Americans a millenia or so back, I have been pleased to see how many widely experienced canoe builders have put David's Micmac at the top of their list of good all around designs.
Hope I can help.
