For those who want the best... Naturally
Fletcher's Canoes come in two models: the 17½' Bill Mason 'Heavy Duty' Special and
the 15'Fletcher's Fancy. Both canoes are 15" deep. They have a shallow, semi-arched
and rockered bottom, providing a very safe yet agile ride. The canoes are equally
at home on lakes or whitewater where their keel-less bottoms allow for quick manoeuvring

Canoes built in the Fletcher Canoe Shop in Atikokan, Ontario - the canoeing capital
of Canada - use the finest selected woods and fabric to ensure the best possible
strength to weight ratio. They feature the painstaking construction of tapered ribs,
to distribute the weight where it counts.
Our canoes are finished with a hand-rubbed blend of canvas filler, and topped with
a quality marine enamel on the exterior. The interior is finished with linseed oil
and three coats of spar urethane. Brass and stainless steel fasteners are used throughout.
For the lodge owner, slat seats and heavier canvas are available.
