All Wood Canoes
We have revived the form of strip construction that was used in canoe and small boat construction that goes back 100 years. The system requires a high quality of craftsmanship to achieve a tight fit on all the planks to make it watertight. Also, the highest grade of red cedar is used to achieve a consistent excellence. Because of the many hours required to produce such high quality, this can never be a mass-produced item. Unlike the mass-produced common strip canoes, we do not use a layer of fiberglass cloth to produce a watertight hull. We build the Tripper, Prospector and Cruising canoes on our cedar canvas molds so the dimensions are the same. The weight on these canoes will be slightly less than the same model in cedar canvas.
