Ian and Lee wanted to explore remote anchorages around Tasmania's South West in Ian's converted 33ft cray-boat. To do this they wanted something light, nimble, strong......but most importantly, something that could be stored in the minimum of space......

A pair of nesting canoes seemed to be the answer and I was keen to work through the "66" building process.....
