Wood cedar strip canoe. Absolutely beautiful workmanship. And performance top-notch. Paddles well tandem/empty and even better loaded with camping gear. Can also be used solo but I bought primarily to use tandem and for camping. Tracks very good and very stable. Just returned from a 2 day paddling camping trip wit my 9yo and canoe performed terrific! Builder/Owner of Kedros Canoes, Tom Niesen, is very knowledgeable and helpful in deciding what model to choose. His work is outstanding and of high quality. The end product beautiful and most important very functional and with great performance! If your wanting that cedar strip canoe you've always dreamed about look up Kedros Canoes! You won't be disappointed!
