A slim sweet hull for experienced paddlers.

The inspiration for this design was built about 1900 by the J.G. Brown Mfg. Co., Lakefield, Ontario. ‘Lorna’ has been paddled since 1912 by the Maclennan family on Baptiste Lake. Original lines were taken in 1988 by Ted Moores and refaired by Steve Killing in 1999 with little alteration to the original shape. 'Lorna' is a good example of the highly developed 'Canadian Style' recreational canoe. This design is a fine balance of all the features desirable in a fast traditional recreational canoe. It has some characteristics in common with the Peterborough Canadien - it is narrow, fast and a pleasure to paddle.

Is this the right boat for you?
