Bear Mountain Kayaks
After a successful run of canoes with Bear Mountain Boat Shop in Peterborough we felt that some sleek woodstrip kayaks should be next. There are five kayaks in the line with various weight capacities and stability requirements. The building process is much the same as for the canoes - mold frames set up on a strongback, with the additional task of building a deck. The woodstrip process gives ultimate freedom in hull shape so no compromises need to be made to accommodate the building material.
We also designed several plywood kit kayaks with panels being CNC cut to make assembly at home easier. The woodstrip kayaks are available from Bear Mountain Boats as plans.
The fleet includes:
16’ 6” Resolute
19’ 3” True North XPD (in conjunction with Canadian Canoes)
20’ 8” Reliance Tandem
Plywood kayak kits (no longer available)
17’ 4” Enterprise
18’ 2” Magic
Upstream Edge - Rockhopper
This multipurpose 11’ kayak was designed for kids and built by Upstream Edge in Guelph, Ontario.
