I weighed my 15'8" MacGregor canoe today. 67 pounds cartopping weight, without the rudder or floor. I'm curious about others who have built this, or a similar design. What does yours weigh?
I planked and decked mine with 4mm okume. Bulkheads are 6mm Russian birch ply, as are the mast boxes. The rest is either ash or white oak.
Funny thing (to me), is that I noticed a large increase in weight after I brushed on 2 coats of Benjamin Moore Marine Primer. I had no idea... that stuff is heavy.
