Nova Craft PAL
Nova Craft... The Canadian Canoe
During its long history of building canoes the Chestnut Canoe Company produced one model the Ajax that proved to have such universal appeal that it became the very definition of a general-purpose craft. This model became so popular that it was renamed the PAL, to reflect the affection owners felt while using it.
Nova Craft has painstakingly reproduced the lines of the original PAL to provide today's paddlers with the opportunity to own one of the best general-purpose traditional canoes ever made.
Nicely suited for flat water trips or short outings for sightseeing or fishing. The PAL handles rough water well and feels comfortable in windy conditions. Indeed, it's a pleasure to paddle either tandem or solo. Once you paddle one you'll know why owners call it my PAL.
Low maintenance trim features aircraft grade black anodised aluminium gunwales with aluminium reinforced ABS end decks; Beautiful nylon laced seats are renowned for their superb comfort and support together with a deluxe sculpted ash yoke makes Nova Craft canoes No1 for Canadian canoes.

TuffStuff is a cutting edge proprietary composite made of basalt and Innegra fibers. Basalt fibre is made of melted basalt rock and Innegra is a fibre consisting mostly of polypropylene. When they are woven together into a cloth and infused with our high impact vinylester resin system, the result is simply amazing! TuffStuff canoes are a great choice for paddlers looking for a light canoe for extended flatwater tripping with more than enough strength to handle lots of abuse in the back country.
