Our boats are paddled by many national champions and our lines of ultra-light tripping canoes are among the most efficient canoes you’ll see in the Boundary Waters and the Canadian wilderness. The secret to our success is that we don’t only build canoes, we paddle them as well.
"John,I was very impressed by the organization and layout of your shop. I think youhave come a long way since I bought my first Diller 18'6 in 1993 to a secondone in 98, to the two I bought for me and John Michael Caloyeras--I won the 99pro c-1 70 in mine. I then bought a JD Pro and not only did it handle very wellfor Holly and I, it proved to be very fast and extremely durable--Matt and Ireally put it through the grinder at the 70 this year. The foam core you use isfar superior to the Hexcel, especially since it can be heated to regain itsshape. Anyhow, the bottom line is that you have not only designed some veryfast and innovative boats, you have continued to improve your manufacturingmethods and quality control and I want to commend you for that. Keep up thegood work."
