Quick Links

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 Prospector models designed by the Chestnut Canoe Company were made in lengths from 12 to 18 feet, filling a need for a canoe with greater carrying capacity than the Pleasure and Cruiser models, but not as large as the Freight canoes.
This model, the 15-foot Ranger, is a sweet shape and Ron Frenette of Canadian Canoes decided Bear Mountain should have it in its catalogue. It has the same end shape and highly rockered hull of Bear Mountain's 16-foot Prospector. With a flattened shallow arch bottom and full ends, the Ranger is stable, strong and a good load carrier.
