Canoe Building

Graceful lines, golden wood, swift and quiet, the boat you build with your own hands redefines paddling.  If you can whittle a marshmallow stick, you can build a canoe. Building a cedar strip canoe starts with canoe plans and now you can get free canoe plans for any NorthWest canoe hull design.  Check out our fresh new design, the NWC Tadpole.

Make NorthWest Canoe your supplier of choice for strips, fiberglass, epoxy… we stock all the stuff you need to build your cedar strip canoe. Sure, you can do the scavenger hunt routine and perhaps save a couple bucks. But, unlike the corner hardware, gorilla-size internet retailer or box lumber store, we build canoes for our day job. We actually enjoy talking with our customers too.

Canoe strips. That's easy. Order cedar strips from the NWC web store. We stock boat-length plus shorter UPS-able cedar strips. Free shipping on UPS length strips means you can start your canoe building project this weekend.


Canoe Repair

The canoe doctors at NorthWest Canoe will patch your gel coat, install Kevlar skid plates, weld your polyethylene kayak, or replace your rotted broken canoe gunwales... whatever it takes to get you back in your boat and on the water. Email or call now to get your canoe or kayak in for repairs while you're out snowboarding.

Need to replace a blown-out canoe seat before you head out? Find ash, cherry and walnut canoe seats in stock plus hard to find canoe parts like six-inch stainless seat bolts.

Make critical field repairs and get professional looking results at home with canoe repair kits from the NWC store. Every kit includes illustrated instructions. Have questions or don’t see exactly what you need? Call us at 651 229 0192.



Get Out There

The right seat bag makes any day on the water more enjoyable. If you paddle bent-shaft sit 'n switch, underseat bags from Granite Gear are the way to go. J-stroking, kneeling paddlers dig the padded seat cover with saddlebags and a kneeling pad from Cooke Custom Sewing.

Shop NWC Online for portage packs, canoe bags, dry barrels... if it belongs in a canoe chances are we have it. Day trip to season-long wilderness excursion, gear-up with confidence at NorthWest Canoe.
