Been driving past this place outside of Kalispell for the past few years and finally decided to stop and visit.

While I didn't the man who started the company, had a nice chat with the son who is shown in the Video on their homepage.
Cedar Canoes

One of these would be nice to have built to tool around the lake is near our retirement property.

They are real nice. A lot of craftmanship has gone into those builds.

They look even better in person.

What really surprised me is that the Cedar is covered in a fiberglass mat both outside and inside. The outside mat is smoothed perfectly flat and is effectively Gelcoat that is smooth, fast and you can not see the fiberglass mat at all. Believe me I looked close and it becomes completely transparent and only the beauty of the wood shows through. The interior is left a bit rougher and you can see the web roughness of the glass mat, but not the glass itself, which provides a rougher surface for shoes or feet to grip.
He had some used ones that were in for "repair", but looked more like were in for a fine detailing, as you could see some minor scuffs, but they looked better than my boat.

Didn`t know you could put fiberglass over wood like that. Must make it way more durable. They have to be true craftsmen to make it invisible.
