Chocorua Boatworks

We build traditional all-wood lapstrake small craft, with a focus on Rushton-type double-paddle and sailing canoes and Adirondack guideboats. We have hundreds of boat plans to select from and all boats are built to order. We custom make single and double paddles, oars and canoe sail rigs. We instruct courses in building lapstrake canoes, Adirondack guide boats, lofting, paddle and oar making. Some materials are available.
