15 ft Elliot Bros. Wood/canvas Canoe
(Owned by Rick Wood

15 ft wood/ canvas canoe built by Elliot Bros. lumber company of Sioux Lookout in the mid to late 50s, early 60s and sold by the Cobourg Lumber Co. Rebuilt with a sliding seat in the bow so it can be paddled easily solo or tandem, decks and hull are original. Gunwales, seats, thwarts are all new. It has been paddled solo on the Spanish River and the Petawawa River among its journeys.


17 ft St. Lawrence Rowing Skiff
(Owned by Rick Wood)

17' woodstrip construction, in the mid 90s, St. Lawrence River Rowing Skiff. These were designed and built to be a fishing/ hunting guide boat in the Thousand Islands circa 1950s. Originally a double ender, this one was squared off to accept a small outboard. The boat is not really an antique but the history of the design and its use was interesting.


16 ft Rice Lake Sailing Canoe
(Owned by Rick Wood

16' Rice Lake sailing canoe. Not sure of the exact build date, but circa 1930 seems to be the closest that can be dug up. It is a 7 planker (older ones were 5), with construction unique to Rice Lake Co. The ribs are cedar and the outer planks are basswood. Sandwiched in between is a layer of canvas. The hull and gunwales are original. All of the other trim has been replaced, including the decks. The original stepping for the mast has been maintained but a new, movable mast stepping has been made. All of the rigging is new, including sail as well as leeboards. For Sale
