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 Coppermine Y Stern 17 shares many of the qualities of the Nomad, while offering canoeists a backup to traditional paddling with the installation of a small electric motor. The Nomad is similar to its workhorse cousin the Prospector but without the huge displacement, allowing for a simpler and easier to paddle canoe.
In developing the Coppermine, Steve Killing maintained the underwater shape of the Nomad to retain its good paddling characteristics. Above the waterline, the widening of the gunnel aft permits the stern seat to move back allowing for a 9"-wide transom which will accept a small electric or gas powered motor. The result is a stately canoe which can be paddled or motored with equal ease and which is pleasing to the eye.
