Margaret 14 is our most versatile canoe, weighing in at about 40lbs. She can handle two adult paddlers and a day or two of supplies. Perfect paddling around the lake, exploring up rivers, and day-tripping, she has a capacity of about 450lbs, built to Platt Monfort's drawings.
This beautiful mid-sized boat is made with a western red cedar, douglas fir and white ash frame, salvaged urban ash seats and thwart, and an aircraft dacron skin. Paddling and portaging a 14' canoe has never been easier as you effortlessly pull her across the water or over hills. Try it out on a wavy day at the beach, Margaret has excellent secondary stability, and when you're done just pick her right out of the water! Even self-rescue is easy with a craft this light, should you manage to capsize.

Mary 8 is our smallest and lightest canoe, weighing in at only 11lbs. She's best suited as a solo playboat for paddling around at the beach, or exploring up rivers, and has a capacity of about 150lbs. This beautiful little boat is made with a douglas fir and white ash frame, and an aircraft dacron skin. Paddling the Mary 8 is great fun, as you are essentially pulling your own weight (plus 11lbs) across the water. Try it out on a wavy day at the beach, and when you're done just pick her right out of the water!

The Owl paddle is broad and powerful, emblazoned with striking black stripes and shaped like the broad tail of an owl. Designed for excellent handling in rougher waters, the thin blade cross-section and talon-like grip provide superb control, while the large surface area creates unmatched power. A fantastic and eye-catching paddle for exploring on rougher waters or playing in the waves at the cottage. It also looks great just hanging on the wall, so don't stuff it in the corner of the garage.
The shaft and grip are comfortable and finished silky smooth with a built up boiled linseed oil that will keep water from soaking into the wood, while slimming the chances of painful blisters. Owl is a symmetrical paddle that can be used in either direction and ambidextrously.
