These canoes were designed for historical hunting, trekking and spirited paddling.
They have the look and in some cases even the feel of a genuine birch bark canoe yet require
They are fast and easy to paddle and depending on length weigh from 45 to 75 pounds. As a result they are easy to load on top of a vehicle and portage.

On the left is a genuine birchbark canoe. On the right is a hybrid fiberglass replica.
We want to create the most authentic, strongest, lightest and least expensive birch bark replica canoes possible but found that some of those aspirations were mutually exclusive - can't have it all. The lightest and strongest would require very expensive materials. The most authentic would require the most elaborate processes thus requiring much time and therefore expense. And finally the strongest would also drive up the weight. Therefore some choices needed to be made. We feel the new lay-ups hit the sweet spot.
