NWC Tadpole - Free Canoe Plan

NWC Tadpole - Free Canoe Plan
  • Item #: 947208

Thinking of the kids, we designed the Tadpole. Fun. A pint-size canoe that’s easy to handle on and off the water. Grab the double blade - Tadpole feels remarkably stable with floor level seating. You’ll wonder why other people’s kids still paddle plastic kayaks. Coming in a tad short of 13-feet means you’ll have no trouble building a 30-pound Tadpole.

Light, nimble and quick to accelerate this symmetrical hull also makes a fantastic freestyle canoe for big kids. Position the seat a few inches below the gunwale and she transforms into a kneeling paddler’s polo pony. The design offers plenty of volume for a day paddle and really doesn’t care about your age.

We build canoes. We don't just sell stuff on the internet. We invite you to consider NWC for your canoe building supplies - canoe strips, epoxies from MAS and AdTech Marine, fiberglass, gunwales, canoe seats... top quality materials, the same stuff we use every day at our shop.
