Dugout Kayak/Canoe

I have been thinking about it for a long while, and have decided to try to build a dugout rec kayak. As there is pretty much no information about this on the web, I am trying to do it using canoe plans, except for obviously modifying the hull shape. As it will be rather unstable (20 inches total beam is the max for my tree selection), I also plan to make it a sort of trimaran, with two outriggers.

Have any of you built a dugout canoe? Can you give me some advice, especially regarding seasoning the wood?

Thanks!
