Re: Anyone build the Sasa

Depends on when you got the book. Chris Kulczycki sold Chesapeake Light Craft on December 31st, 1999. I forget the exact publication date for "The Canoe Shop"; it was a few years later. Chesapeake Light Craft's (and my own) participation in Chris's book "The Canoe Shop" was minimal. We didn't then and don't now sell plans for the Sassafras canoes.
The first edition had problems with the plank layout drawings for plans builders, to everyone's annoyance, most especially mine, because they called me, not Chris or the publisher. The publisher duly issued an errata sheet to anyone who got the first edition. A second edition, published about 18 months ago, corrected most of the errors. If you buy the book now you won't have problems with the plank offsets.
