The Canadian Canoe Company just north of Toronto spearheaded this project in 1997. They love traditional boats but wanted a midsize hull that had a little more capacity than the 15 footers.
This new design quite obviously borrows some of its heritage from the Prospector series but is graced with a little more tumblehome in the hull sides and less curvature in the sheer. We think it is even better looking that the boats you remember as a kid.
Don't let the cottage reference fool you, this boat is happy playing near the beach, on portages or off on a two-week canoe trip. It planks up beautifully and will make you look like a professional.

For more information regarding our short cedar strips, click here.
The White Cedar Kits include strips ranging from 3' in length up to a maximum of 7'10". However, please note that 80% of your strips will be within the range of 5' to 7'10".
We would like to inform you that due to the size of the products, custom shipping arrangements will be required. Please note that freight shipping for these kits can be costly. However, if you choose a full white cedar kit or a short strip kit (see link included above), these kits can be shipped through a courier, saving you on shipping costs. If you want to purchase red cedar (which comes full length) but want short strips to save on shipping, then please included this information on the note at checkout. We will reach out to you with a confirmed shipping price before proceeding with the shipment.
