Canoes and Accessories

12' Trapper Canoe

Our beautiful 12'  Trapper canoe is a dream ride for the solo canoeist tracking beautifully in the water, with lots of room for excess gear.  Having taken the lines for this canoe from an original 12' Chestnut, it's short but sturdy design is a great advantage in navigating through open waters or small rivers.  Crafted in traditional wood/canvas construction, our trapper canoe features babish seats, cherry decks and carrying yoke. Even though this canoe was originally designed for one, the sturdiness of its constructions enables it to accommodate two people.

12' Wood/Canvas Rowboat

This beautifully handcrafted 12' rowboat is our tribute to the days gone by when rowboats were a regular sight in cottage country.  The shape of this sleek rowboat come from lines taken from a 1940s Peterborough Autoboat (also referred to as the cartopper), so named as this design was made to be mobile.  We crafted our rowboat in traditional wood/canvas construction and added some fine wood working details to make this rowboat uniquely ours.  It can comfortably hold three adults and can accommodate a 31/2 horse power motor.  Our rowboat is not only a beauty to look at and a dream to row, it will give you a whole different way to experience the water.

Wanigans

                     

Wanigan, a term originally borrowed from Northeastern Aboriginal Peoples meaning "storage pit", was historically adapted in the New England region to refer to a boat or small chest filled with supplies for a lumber camp.  In keeping with this tradition, and recognizing the limited space in a canoe, our wanigans are available in three different sizes in order to maximize the storage space in your canoe.  During the off season, they make a great accent and extra storage space in your family room or recreational room, or you can stack them away inside one another.
