- the ultimate sailing challenge
There are a number of builders and suppliers who will provide the items necessary to build a complete canoe. Most ICs are completed by their owners, either working from a bare shell or from a more advanced state.
From the highest specification boats to kits at any stage. Also sliding seats, carriages, foils etc. All aspects of IC building and repair covered, including fitting out, alloy fabrication, anodising (most colours), spraying, painting, masts, sails, fittings, epoxies and glues.
