See the sights with handcrafted canvas canoes.
When it comes to watercraft, you might think that something like a canvas canoe would require a lot of gentle care and would not be very durable. However, you might be surprised to learn that not only are canvas canoes exceptionally durable, but they have also been the preferred method of transportation of many people across the lands for generations. Canvas canoes are made from a light and flexible cedar frame that is covered with a treated and watertight canvas. Here in Muskoka, I would like to help you restore, repair or create your own one-of-a-kind canvas canoe at my canoe shop, Cook Craft.
Canvas canoes have been travelling the waterways of rivers, lakes and streams for generations, and are designed to be flexible yet durable. This makes them ideal for the occasional bump on a rock as well as light enough to be carried by a single individual. If you have a canvas canoe that is in disrepair or needs restoration, I can help. Because my methods are those that have been honed over a century and passed down to me from expert woodworkers, you will get the quality results from your repairs or custom builds that you are looking for.
If you have questions about my work here at Cook Craft, I would love to talk more with you. Please contact me today on how we can get you on the water in the canvas canoe of your choice.
