This Cedar-strip canoe model is completely hand built by skillful and creative master craftsmen, the usage of a process called Strip-building which is a method of boat building commonly used for canoes and kayaks, but also suitable for larger boats. The process involves securing narrow, flexible strips of wood edge-to-edge around temporary forms. The
strips are secured to each other with epoxy glue. The roughly covered
hull is then smoothed and reinforced with fiberglass cloth & epoxy
before removing it from the forms. The inside is then smoothed and
in a similar way reinforced.

It would make an ideal canoe for young kids, the canoe only weighs 27 lbs (a benefit of strip building). This canoe has had ribs installed to make it even stronger and prettier. Included with this model is a wooden paddle.
Each canoe is uniquely identified by a serial number, which is laser
cut to the hull of each canoe. We may be able to identify
the production date of a canoe, the material that was used on the canoe, the craftsmen who worked on each area of the canoe, the
individual who inspected the canoe and also the professional packaging
staff. Quality is our number 1 priority, thus all steps are thoroughly
supervised from the beginning to the end of making each canoe.
