    Came across a canoe last weekend stamped on the deck was "Stalek Canoe Co." of Canada...other than makeshift repairs, it was on fair shape. very narrow ribs,widely spaced. Couldnt find any serial #'s though! Anyone ever heard of this company?

    I have been given a 12' Stalek cedar stripped canoe, which I've patched. Anyone know anything further about them? Google seems to turn up nothing at all.

    Googling "Richard Guy Briggs canoe" brings you to which has photos of a canoe if you scroll down a bit. Don't know if this is any help. Googling "Bow and Stern - March 1979" gets to a trip report with a trip taken in a Stalek canoe -- but no information about the canoe or its builder.

    I saw that thread, but I was interested in the history of the company. It's a beautiful canoe, and very light. Although it came with three paddles, I have an itch to make a cherry / maple laminate paddle.
