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. The Nomad is 17-foot tripping canoe and a kindred spirit to the Chestnut Prospector Fort. The mid-section and profile are similar to Bear Mountain's 16-foot Prospector but with much of the hollow in the water lines removed. This adds some volume and stability to the hull below the water line and makes a very easy shape to plank in cedar strip construction.
