A recent study found the average wooden canoe builder walks 23,000 steps or 6.7 miles in building a wooden cedarstrip canoe. Another study found that the average canoe builder drinks, on average, 7.8 gallons of beer while building a cedarstrip canoe.That means, on average, the average wooden cedarstrip canoe gets about 116 miles per gallon (MPG)*.
Kind of makes you proud, eh?
