Wooden Ships Comments on this Canadian Canoe
Believed to have been built in France in the 1930’s for an owner on the Loire to a traditional Canadian design. The build is intricate and very fine with closely spaced ash frames and tight seamed mahogany planking.
Bought by the present owner in poor condition, he carried out a complete cosmetic refit by stripping the hull back to bare wood inside and out the re-varnishing. The seats and sole boards are new but otherwise she is totally original.
A beautiful canoe to paddle and a joy to own, she is ready to go with two varnished paddles. Light enough to carry on a roof rack, this is the more classy alternative to a stand up paddle board. Complete canoe including paddles and seats is just under 60kg.
Lightly constructed with tight seamed mahogany planking fastened with bronze tack nails to ash frames.
Oak keel with a bronze rubbing strip on the bottom.
Large oak breast knees bow and stern with a towing eye forward.
Tapered oak gunnels and rubbing strakes are an elegant feature.
3 oak thwarts give a variety of seating positions depending on how many are in the canoe. Comfortable lattice seats in oiled mahogany and red cedar.
Oiled red cedar sole boards.
