Placid Boatworks builds the highest quality solo and tandem recreational canoes available right in our waterside shop in Lake Placid. What sets our watercraft apart from mass-produced, heavy plastic boats? Strong, lightweight carbon/Kevlar construction. Beautiful, hand-finished Adirondack cherry gunwales and seat frames. Highly water resistant thwarts and deck plates of colorful laminated wood. Next time you are in town, be sure to stop by for a visit. If the water's not solid, you can treat yourself to a Placid Boatworks test drive right outside our door.
