Re: Manufacturers

I love to paddle as do most that frequent sites such as these. To that end, as a day paddler and die hard tripper, I believe Nova Craft makes canoes that are effiecent in design, fit and finish is excellent and they are built robustly ... that is important to me as a solo tripper who is often deep in the bush alone. My pal that I use as a solo is a tandem and is 48 pounds is kev/spec, but is built very tough. I am sure many have their favorite canoe manufactures for various reasons ... those above are mine. I really respect Nova Craft canoes.
