I am still looking for a small canoe design. I would like to hand this canoe down to my grand daughter. I also wanted a "wee" canoe to play about in. I keep coming back to the NW Tadpole. Anyone built this canoe and most important, anyone paddled one?

I have seen it being built and up close at the NWC shop. I have not paddled it. I have talked to Dennis and another freestyle paddler about their time in the canoe. It is really more of a freestyle boat suited for experienced paddler from what they said. Very tender. I was going to build one for my kids but decided against it. Not because of what they said about it but because I missed the window of time when they were smaller. Adult boat size now. CB
