Heir to a long tradition
Proud to perpetuate a more than centennial craft, Canots Lost-River builds cedar strip/canvas canoes in accordance to the traditional method. Concerned about the protection of this precious heritage, we also restore old cedar/canvas canoes. All our work is hand-made. We use renewable materials, and we avoid the by-products of the petrochemistry.
The cedar strip/canvas canoe, the best of choices
We prefer cedar strip/canvas canoe as much for its lightweight, its solidity and its manoeuvrability as well as for its beauty, the warmth of its materials and its comfort. The lacquered canvas covered hull has an unequalled suppleness.
To these numerous qualities, we add the durability and the ease of restoration. With a minimum of maintenance, your boat will last decades, and even your heirs will appreciate it!
