Canoe seats

  • Built in Ontario at Wards Canoe around 1990, and lovingly cared for by a single owner.
  • The canoe weighs a mere 65 pounds!
  • Hull is classic shape with up turned bow and stern and slight tumblehome, a beauty
  • All structure is wood, hand fitted and fastened in place with through bolts or screws
  • Oak or hard maple used throughout and finished with teak oil. Maintenance through the years also teak oil as it penetrates and builds a n extra smooth protective finish
  • Material is polyester resin reinforced with glass fiber with shape strips and keel strip cast in place. Colour is gelcoat applied in mould first.
  • Self material bow and stern buoyancy tanks cast in place
  • Paddles also handmade at Wards are hardwood, with “tee” handles, teak oil finished like new. We kept the set we used which are quite beat up: rocks and tent pole duty
  • All wood structure has stood the ravages of use and shows NO stress or cracking or damage whatsoever
  • Hull bottom has a multitude of scratches in the gelcoat from rocks and only a keen eye can find one that is deep enough to expose a glass fiber
