Clipper at Klemtu

One of our canoes that will see the water, but never 'see' the water, if you know what I mean.

This special version of the 31' Northern Dancer, with a fiberglass deck was commissioned for the new Klemtu Ferry Terminal. I think it looks very small up there.

The canoe greets those entering the new terminal. The white Kermode bear on the plaque (left), reflects Klemtu's location in the Great Bear Rainforest.

Four 'copper' paddles have been mounted in the deck.
The images represent; salmon, killer whale, mouse woman and the 4 seasons of the moon.

WCK winter update.

The Fraser Valley has been hit with one of the coldest snowiest winters in recent history. You may be wondering what does a canoe and kayak retailer do during these cold wintery days. Well, we do what any self respecting paddle junkie would do and go kayaking, all be it behind a snowmobile in our parking lot but its still kayaking.

So, yes, despite the best efforts of mother nature we are still open for those hardy Canadians not about to let a little cold weather slow down there paddling.

Happy New Year and have a great season on the water in 2012!
