While the look and feel of the wooden originals
is hard to beat, our glass/kevlar hybrid has its advantages.
The Pacific Dancer weighs less than a third of the
weight of a dugout of this size. This not only makes
the canoe nimble on the water, but much less effort
when loading and unloading. The Dancer is constructed
of hand layed fiberglass and reinforced in areas of
high stress and wear.
This canoe features 9 seats, plus the elevated sterns-person’s
perch, seating up to18 paddlers and the possibility
of passengers and gear.
Other features include, foam core floor for added
stiffness. Lots of positive flotation with foam flotation
in the bow & stern tanks, and under each seat.
This canoe is virtually maintenance free, featuring
low maintenance gunnels, allowing you maximum time
for paddling and enjoying this fine craft.
We expect the Pacific Dancer to be very popular up
and down the West Coast. Suitable for First Nations
Journeys, tour businesses and school use. For more

Large canoes are often referred to as WAR Canoes,
particularly in articles written in the early 1900's.
Today we often refer to them as 'Big Canoes' encompassing
the many 22'+ styles and shapes paddled in North America
