Repairs & Restoration

As soon as we started building traditional cedar rib canvas canoes we were pleased to discover that there are many classic canoes in sheds and barns looking to be brought back to life.  if you would like to have granddad’s Chestnut canoe restored to its original form, let us know and we would be happy to give you a quote.

We can fix ALMOST any canoe, regardless of condition.  We can replace broken ribs, inside and/or outside gunnels, decks and seats, and re-canvas.
Your cost depends on the condition of your canoe, and we would be happy to give you a rough idea over the phone.

To give you an idea,

Re-canvassing is $25 per foot
New Outside gunnels are $150
New Inside Gunnels are $250  (because a lot more work to get them in)
Fixing broken ribs and planking ?? We really have to look at it.

Check out our photo gallery for some of our restoration jobs!

Don’t let that classic canoe rot away.  Give it a new life!!
