I'm building it from full size patterns purchased from Bertaut boats. I'm not sure about trying to reduce the rocker from the curve of the hull. I would actually prefer more rocker than what it looks like I'm going to get with this design but I'll have to put it in the water before I can really say that for sure.
My next Pirogue will be to plans from Keith's Pirogues. I really like his design and I appreciate the fact that he took the time to learn what he could from the old masters before that knowledge was lost forever. I searched for people to apprentice under and it looks like Keith may have been one of the last folks to get the opertunity for tapping that knowledge base.
