Strippers Wanted!
If you've got the project, we've got the cedar strips!
We've got 20' cove and bead cedar strips in 1/2", 5/8" and 3/4" wide by 1/4" thick - perfect for stripper canoes, kayaks and other projects.
Contact Peter at the shop if you're interested!


The glide and tracking of a touring kayak, the stability and durability of a recreational kayak and an amazingly comfortable seating system for under $1000 - oooh ya!  You gotta have one of these!  At only 45lbs, the new Necky Manitou not only handles like a dream on the water, it's easy for one person to carry and get on and off a roof rack.  Visit us to test drive a Manitou today!
