The Woods Canoe 12 is produced in a two part mold -- the stripe you see is the seam line.  It’s possible to build the upper and lower portions in different colors as well as having various seam colors.

The Woods Canoe 12 is available with composite style outfitting as shown below in the green canoe or with wood outfitting as shown above on the red canoe.  No difference in price or weight.




Slipstream Watercraft produces two unique designs from the historic shop of Bart Hauthaway (1924-2002) -- the Woods Canoe and the St Regis.  Both are of John Henry Rushton orgin/inspiration.  Slipstream has obtained use of the original Hauthaway molds from Bob Wolfertz who, at times, worked hand and hand with Bart.

Bart, a true pioneer, was one of the most prolific of composite boatbuilders back in the day when fiberglass was just becoming popular -- with an eye toward lighter weight fabrication.

The original molds being used to fabricate your canoe are unquestionably museum pieces made by Bart many, many years ago.  However, they are not what would be called “production tools” by the standards of modern lamination.  Our first thought was to rework the designs and build “production” quality molds.  But then, we contemplated the authentic and legendary value of such treasures and decided to build from the existing molds exactly as they came from Bart’s shop.

As a result, if you look closely, you’ll see a few tiny imperfections here and there on your canoe.  They are purely cosmetic and we feel they add to the romance and narrative -- the continuing saga of Bart Hauthaway, John Henry Rushton and the tale of the Woods Canoe.
