About the canoe pictured above:
This canoe was built on the 14ft chestnut playmate mold, with custom jigs to shape the stem and gunwales in order to give it the appearance of the Algonquin birch bark canoes of the late 19th century. It was constructed out of white and red cedar, with ash gunwales and mahogany parts. We hand laced the seats with babiche and applied custom made decals to both the hull, decks, and thwart. This canoe was built specifically to celebrate the history of the canoe and to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday.
Our canoes are $300/ft. Please inquire for more information.
