PricingPricing? Each canoe is very much a unique individual and most of the wood and canvas canoes out there are old. They have seen many years of service and, all to often, neglect. Many seemingly whole canoes contain unfortunate “surprises”. It’s therefore more then a little difficult to quote a general price for a project. With photos, I can sometimes get a fairly good idea but, whenever possible, I prefer to see the canoe in person.
