Wooden oc-1

Hello everybody, i'm new to the forum.

I'm from Fuerteventura (Canary Islands) i've paddle in a couple of oc (there are not many around here) but i don't own any. I do have a couple of sups and one surfski (lifesaving spec) but i have to say that i like to paddle in seated position but i love the feeling of a single paddle so i really enjoy outriggers.

It's been a long time that i seen this picture:


And i really want to make something like that.

Can somebody help me to find the guy who made it or give some ideas on how to do it?

I would love the idea of build and paddle my own oc...

Try getting in touch with Gary Deirking in NZ. http://homepages.paradise.net.nz/garyd/ You wont see it on his site, but I know he has plans for an OC1. I built a four-man version of his Ulua.

I'm gonna try to get in touch with him.
That Ulua in the picture is beautiful!!!
Nice job, how it rides?

she's sweet. The hull is only 120LBS. Paddles and sails well. The design in different than most four-man canoes in that it has less rocker so the canoe is less squirrelly, but the trade off is that its harder to turn in the surf.

Thanks Mean DNA
Looks good and easy to use the only problem i have is that i have no idea about the measures on an oc1 and here in the island is only one or two far away from where i live and i don't know the owners...
I would like to build something that works.
