The Peterborough Canoe Restore....
This is an old boat (Pre WWII) that was used to deliver mail on a Canadian lake for forty years. I found it in a barn in Ottawa. We replaced thirteen steam bent white oak frames, the transom, the outer lower stem and keel. It was completely stripped and epoxy saturated. The bottom was skinned with light fiberglass cloth for extra strength and durability. It is a cedar planked boat with mahogany seats, transom and deck. It has butternut seat supports and outer gunwales and mahogany and butternut seat backs. Also, comes with original oars. She is fifteen feet long, fifty inches wide and is considered a freight canoe. She planes with two people and a Johnson 10 hp easily.Complete with a trailer, full canvas cover, 10hp 1957 Johnson (restored) and fuel tank, she is ready to go. $7000.00

The Carolina Canoe is a special project....
Hull #5 is a 16.5 foot skiff that Bandy Boats is entering in a national design contest. It is a combination of old and new technology that will have aesthetic qualities of the old days, vintage outboard power with modern design and materials. Basically a modern interpretation of a runabout from the fifties. Good for light tackle fishing, water skiing, tubing and creek crawling. She is fast, sea worthy and extremely economical.

In the water!
A classic Whaler restoration with a modern twist. We created a custom deck assembly to update a 1968 Boston Whaler and maintain the beneficial attributes of having weight forward. A lightweight, Yamaha 90 powers this boat and is considered by many, a perfect match for a 17 foot Whaler. This boat is wonderful in any sea conditions you would want to be out in and she is for sale. For more information, email rbandy@comcast.net
