 SOLO SERIES

Designed for maximum efficiency. These canoes track well, come up to speed easily and have a long easy glide. Their low centres and ends mean that they behave well in a breeze. Their narrow beams and elliptically arched mid-ship profiles ensure easy reach for the solo paddler, kindly sea-keeping characteristics and modest stability. These are the thoroughbreds of Ashes’ line of canoe models.

Development Program

Builders Wanted

 

Keen observers will note that a number of our canoe building plans are available by special request only. These are hulls that are somewhere in the design/prototype loop. We’d be happy to let you build from them (and might even give you the plans for free!) but only with the knowledge that you’ll be one of the first. For brave and adventurous souls, this may just be the bee’s knees. If you’re of that bent, contact the designer at Ashes, Trevor Paetkau, and we’ll open a conversation about how you can be part of the development program.
