As the expression goes, "nothing last forever." So when your favourite paddling accessory reaches its twilight years, did it give you enough love and performance over its lifetime to be worth it? The feedback that we get here at North Water on this question is a consistent and fervent "YES!"

Recently, North Water shipped out another unique gear design. This time it was a canoe cover designed for flying. We built the first one of it's kind a few years ago, but having now improved on the design we have found it reduces the cost of aviation fuel by 30% for airline companies in the North. While it may be an unique use, our design has been of great benefit for both handling the plane and cost savings. Below are some photos of the cover(s) being used on bush planes.
