Final pricing on custom canoes vary by spray job. There are two levels of spray job: simple and complex.
1) Simple custom:
Includes: Solid colors, two color fades, and cockpit tape jobs.
Limitations: No black or fades on the hull, no pearl or clear gel coat anywhere. Three color maximum.
2) Complex custom:
Spray jobs are limited only by your imagination and our ability to spray. Abstract designs are ok, complex designs may need to be simplified. We can spray up to five colors on a canoe. Webbing, splatter, clear, and pearl type designs are all ok. Fades, pearl, and hard lines on the hull are possible, though not recommended. Clear on the deck is possible, but not on the hull. You also have the option of either stainless steel or polymer cable. Any design that takes more than twelve hours to spray or requires the use of of our CNC machine to cut out a custom stencil (like scales, diamonds, checkers, etc) will cost an additional $400.
This canoe is guaranteed to weigh under 19.5 lbs. It's a double carbon lay-up with carbon foot pedals and polymer cable, and it only comes in solid grey.
4) Stock canoe:
We produce one canoe per week that we sell right out the door of our shop. These canoes are available to anyone regardless of wait list status. By ordering a custom canoe, you can opt to receive email notification whenever we have a stock canoe available.
