Wee Lassie

Quiet, serene, solo paddling in those hard to get to places is where the Wee Lassie excels. This canoe is a modified version of an old Henry Rushton design, which is configured with a low seat and paddled with a double bladed paddle. It also can be paddled in the kneeling position as a free style canoe. The short length and narrow slight V-bottom hull makes this an ideal canoe for shallow, twisty streams and rivers. Flared sides give it good final stability and make it very seaworthy on larger bodies of water with wind and waves. With our light lay-ups, this boat is probably the lightest canoe made and makes it a joy to portage and paddle. If you enjoy exploring places where most canoes cannot go, try the Wee Lassie. Also can be used as a free style canoe.

"I just got home from the Freestyle symposium in the ADKs. My kneeling Wee Lassie was a big hit and the most tried boat there. Several instructors tried it and there were comments on the quality of workmanship from several including Charlie Wilson. At least one person will be contacting you about purchasing one."

"We've been out twice in pretty windy conditions in our Wee Lassie’s and I LOVE IT!  Can't wait for a nice calm day.....  Also, everyone that has seen the boats are just BLOWN AWAY by them... HYPERLIGHT!!!"

"John,  Wee Lassie was delivered on Sunday. Good delivery man -- perfect condition  -- nice guy.  At first look, I thought the seat would be too low making it hard to get in and out.  Maybe, I should have ordered the higher standard seat. Wrong, I put it in the water today and the seat is perfect! There is enough final stability that there is no problem getting in and out. Plus, the thwart behind the seat is a great back rest. I weighed the boat today -- 13.1 pounds. Hull is perfect-- not a scratch or mark. Boat is great fun to paddle. I am a very happy customer!"
