We have been building competitive, easy to maintain sprint racing canoes since 1995. Our beautifully finshed wooden C4 and C15 racing canoes are fast and famous. Clubs across North America know that these boats have fine finish, performance and durability. We know that boats in your club have to survive in order to finish the race, so Scott builds them with his well proven construction process.

A number of clubs have looked to Scott for restoration and repairs for their racing craft.  We take great pride in our workmanship and our attention to details. No project boat is too difficult. We have restored all boats from all levels of disrepair. resin/glass construction, and high-performance rigs. We enjoy building for the clubs and can appreciate the effort that goes into raising money for new boats. With this in mind, we have tried to keep our price as low as possible without sacrificing quality.

The Primary difference between our boats and the traditional boats is the construction technique we use. Our boats are designed for the relatively unskilled volunteer in mind. The hull is a high strength to weight ratio consisting of a variety of western red cedar strip planked hull sheathed inside and out with fibreglass cloth.  The fibreglass is impregnated with an epoxy resin effectively eliminating any water contact with the wood.  The result is a lightweight and strong canoe that preserves the traditional wood grain and craftmanship of the canoe. As a finishing touch, vinyl lettering that identifies the sponsor and your club canl be applied in a variety of colours.
