Alex Comb

PO Box 297 Knife River, MN 55609


Alex Comb now builds ten different wood and canvas canoe designs as well as a square stern sportboat built with wood and canvas construction. All designs are based on historical models, several relying on Chestnut and E.M White designs. Alex pays particular attention to keeping the canoes light in weight using either the traditional cotton duck covering or an optional Dacron covering for additional weight savings. He sells a complete line of supplies for canoe building and restoring, including plans for most of his models and videos on building a solid form and building wood and canvas canoes. He offers private lessons for those wanting to build or repair their canoe in his shop.
