Help finding canoe brand

Hoping someone can give me the company name or web page. I can see the web page pictures in my head but can’t find the freakin’ link or the name. Driving me nuts!!!

I was having a discussion with a friend about decked canoes. Discussion turned to smaller decks or “semi decked” canoe. I remember seeing one small company that makes a canoe like this.

They had a main lower hull as one piece. And then it looked like the upper hull incoporated a shouldered tumble home and the end caps all into one piece. Almost looked like a recreational kayak but with a longer, more open cockpit.


here ya go!

the deck ends only covered about 18" of each end but it was worked in as one solid piece with the gunwales.

Phoenix Vagabond?


Does the winner get a prize? ;^)

Know the one you mean I think, but darned if I can remember what or where.

You and yours have a Very Good New Year Matt! Say high to everyone, the outlaws too. ;^)



yes, the winner gets…
Mick’s Flashfire!

Happy New Year back at ya. I’ll pass along the good tidings.

This is seriously starting to bug me. I can picture the boat in my head. I think the one on the site was like a brown-ish color. But that could be just my feable brain transposing.

A guess …
Millbrook Canoes/Kayaks???

Wha Ho!

In the early '90s I paddled a 5 meter (16'+/-) "canoe" called the 'Bavaria' in what was a few years before, East Germany. Built in the Czech Republic with the characteristics you are talking about, but made from very heavy duty fiberglass (I believed they used the specifications from the WWII King Tiger tanks as a model), weighed about 125 pounds and had long one-piece decks/gunnels. Four, yes, 4 seats. The European idea of the "Canadian Canoe". Worst canoe I ever paddled but thats all they had there at that time. But I guess that wouldn't be the one you heard about.

OK I want to bump this one time to get the post-holiday traffic.

Still trying to figure out what brand canoe that was.

Starting to beome an obsession! ;-p

Saw a Picture
of something like that just recently, but can’t remember where. Was it an early Pat Moore, or a Blackhawk?


Mick’s flashfire
that’s easy then…it’s called the suzy creek canoe by henry canoes. now where’s that flashfire? :wink:

that is not it either…unless you have a link I’m not finding.

oh well…
how’s my row boat going? the X-tra is about ready for the hull glass. looking pretty good.

row, row, row, your boat
We still need to discuss a few things.

Easy Rider?
It doesn’t exactly seem right, but I thought I’d throw it out there.

maybe I’ll have to draw a sketch of what I’m talking about.
