I built my Sweet Dream Canoe in a class up at the WoodenBoat School in Brooklin, Maine. If you're interested in building one yourself, you can order the book (which I have and is very good) and a DVD ( which I don' t have) from The Boat Shop. It really is a nice paddling canoe (and it's FAST!), and I get compliments whenever anyone sees it.
