Description

A wide variety of wooden boat and canoe restorations have gone through the shop. They have come from all across North America, from England, Germany, and Sweden. It is hard to find a small wooden boat or canoe type that I haven’t worked on! I’ve restored basket cases that were over 100 years old that other shops turned down. Hopefully your boat has received better care than that!

While the shop adheres strictly to traditional construction methods and material, certain options are available to satisfy individual preferences. Contrasting wood colors often add a special appeal to a canoe. These include mahogany, walnut, or cherry rails, thwarts, and seats, as well as cedar half ribs. Special light-weight models, durable and attractive shellac bottom paint, two-tone paint, outside stems, keels, and hand-caned seats are also available.

Many customers like to have special colors or designs on their canoes. The historic Old Town Canoe Co. had over 100 standard paint designs that could be quite elaborate. We can reproduce any of those old designs or make a new one for you!

Please inquire about any additional options or additions that you may desire for your canoe.
