The perfect canoe would be one that has low mass, infinite rigidity and be impervious to damage.  Obviously, no such thing exists, however, having worked in composite construction for over 30 years, there is little that we haven't had first-hand experience of here at Apache Canoes.

We are expert in just about every composite reinforcing material and resin and have created a range of canoes from, what we believe to be, the best combinations of mat, cloth and resin for each class of canoe.
