    It's all explained here.

    All that said we certainly want members to review canoes. If the canoe you are reviewing is already listed then you should post your review on the existing thread. If it is not listed then post the review in the Gear section and drop me a Pm or just report your own post and ask for it to be moved to the review section.

    Hope this helps

    Hello and Welcome!

    I've never actually heard of Bluewater canoes before, so can't help you there. A quick google revealed why...they're not seemingly normally available over this side of the Atlantic. They look to be beautiful canoes; http://www.bluewatercanoes.com/

    A quick peruse of the website suggests a range of nicely made mostly still/open water canoes.

    Apparently Bluewater and Scott canoes are one and the same (I stand to be corrected) and they went out of business last year.

    I've heard from a reliable source that Mid-Canada Fibreglass in New Liskeard (makers of Scott and Bluewater canoes) ceased operation yesterday. Scott was at one time Canada's largest canoe manufacturer. Apparently, "The bank called their loans... The company has been on shaky financial ground for several years. The recession and under-performing diversification efforts finally overwhelmed them.... "

    Sk8r on this forum who lives in Canada has a Scott canoe and may be able to provide more info if you contact her.
