Not wanting to hijack this thread but the OP may be interested as well.

Now, I remember reading somewhere a while back on plank flat bottom canoes (not sure if the name is correct). Can't remember how they were built, with a single plank bottom or not. When were these first built and in what region. Don't remember if the planks were hand hewn or sawn. Any one have information on these. Thank you.

There was one on the wall of the community center in Thorne Bay, Alaska (on Prince of Wales Island) years ago. It probably still is. It was found in one of the rivers, looked like it had been there for a l-o-n-g time. About 12' long IIRC. But I left there 17 years ago, things change so it may have become firewood by now.
