LITTLE BEAR CANOE COMPANY - Ralph Coolong established LBCC nearly 30 years ago and has since been creating and building unique handcrafted model canoes. Unfortunately, LBCC has suffered a devastating loss of its canoe shop, equipment, canoes and so much more as a result of a fire that tore through the shop leaving nothing salvageable in its wake.
LBCC fully intends to rebuild and continue its tradition of building rib and plank model canoes and canoe lights but it will take some time, money and hard work. Ralph has worked hard and dedicated the last several decades to honing his craft and becoming a master craftsman. The building of traditional wood canoes is a dying art form that is performed by few. LBCC has sold thousands of canoe models over the years, donated dozens of models to charities, schools, and other worthy causes, and has worked to be a good steward in the small business community.
LBCC hopes that it customers and suppliers will be patient and understanding during this difficult time.
Every canoe on this website will be handcrafted per customer.
