Holy smoke, Dave. No wonder you Limeys spend half a lifetime on the esthetics. I'd better not tell you haw much my last few canoes cost, or you'll be wanting to emigrate! Just a hint; the (mostly NA) Boat Design Forum has a special thread for boats that cost less than $100 and it has well over 100 posts on it. They don't all have a boat, but there's an impressive number that do.
