15' Ami


I put some special features into this canoe. The hull has been fiberglassed to show the beautiful red cedar planking and has a graphite/epoxy treatment below the water line. Also the ribs are glued to the planking rather than nailed so that the nail heads would not be visible through the fiberglass. The Western red cedar planking is applied to Northern white cedar ribs. The inwales are Alaska yellow cedar and the seats, thwarts, outwales and the hand-carved yoke are black cherry with some birdseye maple highlights inlaid in the thwarts and outwales.

A very special canoe that would be perfect for either a tandem or solo fishing trip or just playing around in a nearby lake or river. There is plenty to room in this canoe considering it is only 15' long and 34" wide so it could easily be taken on a tandem canoe trip. It only weighs 48 lbs. so it is sweet to portage.









18' B.N. Morris Canoe

Solitude solo canoe This canoe was built in 1912 and was professionally restored in 2002 by Bourgin Boats of Ely, MN when the canvas was replaced, new seat caning installed and new inwales and outwales installed. The new and original trim is all Mahogany. Serial number 9573.

The canoe has been cared for by the current owner since 1979. In excellent condition.
