Today’s podcast is with Dennis Davidson of Northwest Canoe (NWC) in St Paul, MN. NWC began building strip planked canoes in 1999 and has a large community of builders, followers, enthusiasts, and boat lovers.

Since he youth Dennis has been involved with canoes – paddling them, admiring them, and working for companies building them. When his friend offered to sell Northwest Canoe to Dennis in 2006, there was no hesitation on Davidson’s part. After working with Al for a year, he was on his own and has never looked back. The NWC canoe community is growing and they are building some amazing boats – including their 24′ North Canoe which with 10 paddlers has reached speeds of 8-9 MPH!
