My partner Joan Barrett and I have over 40 years’ experience building wooden boats that combine classic lines with the most advanced marine technologies. Our workshop produces C4 and C15 sprint racing canoes, prototypes for production designs, elegant one-off custom boats, as well as repairs and restorations of historically significant craft. The lessons we learn in the workshop are passed on to first time builders in the form of how-to books, classes, hard-to-find building materials, and kits. We measure our success in the thousands of Bear Mountain canoes and kayaks that emerge from home workshops around the world.

Overview

Build your own canoe with high-quality kits and plans from Bear Mountain Boats. This design is an efficient wilderness canoe that has proven exceptionally seaworthy, even in heavy seas around the Magdalen Islands in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the North Sea. Its keeless shallow-arch hull with moderate rocker combines with a long waterline and fine entry to make it a fast responsive boat.
The bow and stern profile are reminiscent of the Long Nose Ojibwa Rice Harvesting canoe. The sides have a moderate tumblehome for lateral strength and to allow outwales wide enough to turn aside waves and spray.
