New Canoes, Cedarstrip

John Van Hal

3800 Hunters Ridge Mooresville, IN 46158


Custom builder of cedar strip canoes for the solo or tandem paddler with 26 years of experience. The most popular craft has been the 16’ tandem Traveler. Presently there are six models offered from 17’ 59lb to a 14’ 40lb solo (pictured above with the happy client). The seventh canoe in the works will be a 15’ solo designed to be a little more stable than most solos as a fishing platform during those days you want to camp and go out with an empty canoe. The hull is encapsulated in epoxy over fiberglass cloth giving it an extremely tough and long lasting cover. Working closely with you through the building process the canoe becomes yours long before completion.
