   Duratex™ Construction Super tough hand-laid fiberglass construction. 24 oz. woven roving, 1 oz. mat, with extra reinforcement in key positions. Premium resins and gelcoats. Reinforcing ribs for strength and stiffness. Built-in flotation chambers. Seats are mounted to hardwood blocks glassed into the hull during lay-up and act as additional structural bracing.

   This method of construction provides a superb blend of strength, weight and price, without the design limitations found in other materials. Over the years, customers have told us, again and again, they can’t believe how tough and rugged our canoes are.



Minnows offer 'gull-wing' tri-hull design for easy rowing while maintaining a stable work platform. The 8' minnow is suitable for one or two persons and is light enough to be managed by one person. Both can be car-topped and will fit in the bed of a pick-up truck. Greater capacity found in the 10' Minnow lends itself to carry more motor gear and personnel.
