SplitCanoe - The two piece cedar strip canoe - Canoes
The canoe featured on this web site is based on the Redbird by Bear Mountain Boats.I redesigned it into two parts that bolt together. It is made of western red cedar with ash yoke and gunnels. the inwales are scuppered and tapered the outer gunnels are tapered also. It has black walnut decks and bulkheads. The seat frames are made of ash and are hand caned. i also have made one based on the freedom 17-9 from bear mountain boats. This one is made of mahagany with seats and yoke made from birdseye maple and curly maple. Curly maple inner gunnels, the outer gunnels are mahagany. Both of these canoes are head turners and we use them when we travel and enjoy the lakes and streams on our travels.
