My intention is to never repeat an idea, no matter how successful. Like composing music – never settle for the commonplace. Each new watercraft must be unique and well… spectacular! Click on any photo for a larger version.
I only use the best materials and work to exacting standards. There is nothing more beautiful to look at or satisfying to paddle than a precisely constructed wooden kayak or canoe. Wood/fibreglass construction gives these craft the perfect paddling mass. Boats that are too heavy, like ABS whitewater canoes are of course very difficult to handle out of the water and boats that are too light, like the ultra-light Kevlar and carbon fibre canoes, tend to bounce on the water and not maintain impetus. Imagine being out on a lake by yourself on a windy day in a 16 ft., 40 lb. canoe with no added ballast? Kiss your patoot goodbye.
No matter what your needs are: fishing, touring or the casual recreational paddle, your watercraft can be built to your specific purpose and respond to your personal paddling style.
