What if I live outside of North America?
Customers outside of Canada + the US must shop from our Canadian website. We can ship via air or ocean freight - costs will be about $600 plus local delivery fees. Receiving your kit at the nearest port/depot is most economical as local delivery fees can be significant; dependent on where you live.
What if I only need some parts such as gunwales or a few planks and not the entire kit?
Since our kits contain full-length planks and trim materials, they must be shipped via road transport truck. The long tube containing the planking and gunnels plus smaller parts weighs less than 100 lbs. but charges are based on a minimum of 100 lbs. This means that if you order a set of gunnels or the entire kit, the shipping cost will be the same.
Pick up Options
You can pick up your kit at our location in Westport, ON or at Canadian Canoes in Mississauga, ON. A kit in its rigid tube weighs about 60 lb. so transporting on roof racks is not a problem; similar to carrying a canoe.
Get a free can of Pettit Hi-Build Varnish with the purchase of an epoxy kit and fibreglass cloth (any size) from Bear Mountain Boats. Ted recommends Pettit Hi-Build because it has excellent UV protection and makes it easy to build up several protective layers. It’s never worth economizing on varnish because it’s the final barrier between your canoe and the elements. Offer represents a $50 value. Cloth and kit must be purchased in the same order to qualify.
