People, just like canoes, come in many shapes and sizes. The object is to make a good match up of the user, the canoe and the use. The canoe you want for paddling at the cottage and courting on moonlit evenings may not be appropriate for a month long canoe trip or moose hunting.
Canoeing is very much a felt activity. The most important thing in purchasing a canoe is not what the manufacturer says, but how it feels to the paddler. We are firm believers that people should paddle a number of canoes when trying to decide what model is appropriate. We are happy to give you a canoe or two to try out for a day. There is good paddling within 10 minutes drive of our shop.

The following general descriptions are an overview of the canoes we make, not a definitive statement of which canoe is best for what.
