Michigan designer-builder, Randall Torno, presents a unique line of custom-built lightweight canoes utilizing exotic and locally sourced wood, hand selected for color and grain. Torno Boatworks canoes are handcrafted works of art, utilizing a unique design that incorporates functional flowing lines from bow to stern. Premium western red cedar strips are individually hand fitted and subsequently encapsulated in fiberglass and epoxy, creating a lightweight and strong hull. Finishing trim wood is selected to compliment the cedar hull. Multiple coats of marine varnish are applied to protect the wood and give an impressive gloss finish.
