Canoe of Three Planks

I have read a lot recently about canoe building, and have watched Ray Mears' Birch Bark Canoe episode several times.

Having read a fair bit about building canoes, I was surprised to come across a unique method of building a canoe - or at least unique to my knowledge.

Absolutely fascinating - I suppose you could use either thin boards taken from a log by splitting or bark peeled from a tree. I found this method while perusing Francis Galton's 'The Art of Travel or, Shifts and Contrivances Available in Wild Countries'.
