For 29 years, Joe Ziemba has been designing and building canoes
at CARRYING PLACE CANOE WORKS for the discriminating paddler.
Each model has been painstakingly perfected and crafted over the
years to protect the past while incorporating the needs of today.
The canoe bridges the past with the present to provide memories
for the future.
All of our cedar strip epoxy models are available in plans. Each
design has a specific purpose and its' own unique beauty. All of
our plans have been designed or carefully lofted from Canadian manufacturers
classic models by Joe Ziemba and then using modern technology, have
been enhanced by a specially designed computer program. All of our
plans are unique and are only available at CARRYING PLACE CANOE
Our plans include models ranging in size from 12' to 17-1/2', for
either solo, tandem or family canoeing. Each canoe has an interesting
history and its' own story to tell. All of our canoes are functional,
beautiful and safe.
