    You’ve never seen metal move quite like this!
    By “this” we’re referring to Barracuda™ - new aluminized
    glass fabric. Barracuda™ boasts the look of metal with
    the functionality of traditional high performance
    composite fabrics. A marriage of style and function,
    this classy layup is a great combination of aesthetic
    appeal, weight, and strength.




    The distinctive appearance
    of Barracuda™ is achieved through
    a unique finishing process designed
    specifically for composite applications.
    When combined with the proper resin, our
    canoes made from Barracuda™ emulate the silver
    sheen of 3-D steel. But a good looking exterior is only
    half the story.

    On the interior of our Barracuda™ layup we utilize a layer
    of Innegra S high performance fabric. Different than
    Kevlar® or fiberglass, this material dramatically increases
    the composite toughness and impact resistance of the
    Barracuda™ layup, and is one of the lightest weight
    fibers available.

    Overall our Barracuda™ canoes offer unique looking
    crafts with the same high-performance characteristics
    of our traditional composite fabrics: strong, durable,
    and lightweight.

    All Barracuda™ canoes feature a foam core and side
    ribs, as well as all black anodized aluminum trim.

           Royalex® canoes are tough and rugged. They are the
           ideal choice for whitewater canoes and wherever
           durability is paramount. These canoes are

           canoes and can be built in nearly limitless
           designs. We offer many models in Royalex®,
           ranging from cost-conscious touring and sport
           canoes, to robust whitewater assault canoes.

"   I absolutely love my Aurora. It has taken more than it’s share of stresses and
    tight places during peak flood levels, but has still performed great on
    many several-day floats down shallow, muddy rivers. Tracks
    great, holds a ton of gear, fast as a bullet, excellent quality.

                       General touring canoes are versatile boats that do everything well. For people
                       who look forward to day trips with the family, fishing, easy weekend adventures,
                       or a week spent canoe camping, our general touring canoes are the best choice.

                       Stable, maneuverable, and able to haul a fair amount of gear, our touring
                       canoes build confidence in developing paddlers. They vary in length from 15
                       feet to 18 feet, but all have generous width and depth, a shallow-arch bottom,
                       and 1 or 2 inches of rocker.

"   Just days before my transplant, my wife bought "me" the best canoe in the world,
    a graphite Minnesota II. She said I needed to survive the transplant so I could
    paddle "my" canoe. Six years later we have put over 1,000 miles on the
    MN; thing is, mile by mile, year by year, it has become "our" canoe.


                                                                               "
    I guess that is surviving, getting back to us, not me.

                                  Performance touring canoes are sleek and efficient. They track like an arrow
                                  and glide like no other canoe — perfect for paddling from the wilds of Canada’s
                                  Quetico Provincial Park to the far reaching stretches of the Amazon.

                                  From bow to stern, our performance touring canoes are ingeniously contoured
                                  for efficiency. They are longer than our general touring canoes (from 16’6”
                                  to 18’6”), slimmer (33”- 35” wide) and have average depth to shrug off wind.
                                  Arched bottoms increase the hull’s speed. They reward good paddling technique
                                  by gliding farther on each stroke than any other category of canoe.

                                          Sports & Leisure Canoes are designed for people with a purpose — fishermen,
                                          hunters, photographers, bird watchers and others who want a stable canoe
                                          that’s easy to maneuver and easy to manage out of the water.

                                          Sports & Leisure hulls are relatively short (17’ or less), and wide (over 36”), with
                                          at least 14 inches of depth. They have full bottoms for a solid “footprint” in
                                          the water, making them stable and secure for paddling with active children
                                          or a jumpy dog. Deep enough to haul all the gear you need, they’ll remain
                                          seaworthy in choppy water.

                  Our versatile Down River canoes give you a solid advantage in all kinds of
                  moving water, from the shallow sweeps of prairie rivers like the Niobrara to
                  the meandering currents of smaller rivers like the Root River, which carves a
                  path through the blufflands of southeast Minnesota.

                  These versatile boats differ in capacity, but all have at least two inches of
                  rocker, generous flare to the sides and depth in the hull. More rocker equals
                  greater maneuverability — a valuable characteristic in moving water. It also
                  softens the effects of crossing sharp eddy lines, where contrary currents tug
                  at your canoe. Down River canoes are also buoyant enough to run dry in
                  lesser grade rapids and stable and seaworthy enough to not be bothered by
                  external forces when handling quick moving waters.

                 and exhilaration that drew you out there.

                 These tough canoes are the real deal, with steeply rockered keel lines (2” to
                 3”) for superb maneuverability, whether you’re slipping down rocky Class III
                 waters in Wisconsin or plunging down the big open flows of the West. The
                 shallow arched hulls are contoured for final stability in hard leans, while the
                 deep hulls and flared bow and stern sections keep the water outside where it
                 belongs.

                 If you dream of exploring Baker Lake in the Arctic or heading to the far reaches
                 of the Quetico, take a look at our Expedition canoes — they turn dreams into
                 tangible realities.

                 These long, deep hulls are built to go the distance and perform well under
                 all kinds of conditions. They have the ability to hold heavy loads and are
                 contoured for efficient paddling when packed full. They’re seaworthy when
                 wind and spray kick up, so your gear stays dry.
