CODDINGTON CANOE PADDLE

 

Coddington Lake is to thank for the Lost Forty, a 40-some acre stand of old-growth White and Red Pine in Northern Minnesota. Only saved from a lumberjack's ax by survey error. One of the largest and last stands in the state that stood during the height of the fur trade, when French traders would have paddled past and portaged through these majestic woods. During the winter of 1882 Josiah A. King and his survey crew mistakenly plotted an 'x' for Coddington Lake in the wrong location, setting it squarely where the Lost Forty now stands,  saving this rare stand of trees because they were supposedly underwater.

 

This design is painted on our Voyageur Heritage Paddle. With an elegantly traditional blade shape these are graceful in and out of the water.

GITCHI GUMMI CANOE PADDLE

 

Gitchi Gummi, meaning “Big Water”, is what the Native American Nations called Lake Superior. The deep blue depths of that monstrous lake are echoed in this design. Countless haunting, epic, glorious and terrible tales have been spun of the Gitchi Gummi over the years. Here’s a few lines of a song from one of the more famous of those tales ~

 

“The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down///of the big lake they called “Gitche Gumee.”///The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead///when the skies of November turn gloomy.///With a load of iron ore twenty-six thousand tons more///than the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed empty,///that good ship and true was a bone to be chewed///when the “Gales of November” came early.”

 

~ Gordon Lightfoot - The Sinking of the Edmond Fitzgerald

FOR THE NEXT CANOE TRIP

CABIN CRUISER CLASS:

 

While not recommended for the rigors of extended wilderness trips, since they don't have fiberglass reinforced blades or epoxy tip guards, they are great for cruising around the lake on day trips or gracing your cabin's wall. These paddles are a combination of hardwood and Western Red Cedar laminated together and have a heavy varnish finish.
