Seliga

Joe Seliga built his wood canvas canoes in Ely, Minnesota for over 60 years. Seligas have been cherished by generations. When Joe was ready to pass on his legacy he sought out Ted Bell and asked that his classic design continue. Here it is again.

Material Options

BlackLite:

Carbon outer with Aramid reinforcements. Combines the stiffness of carbon fiber with the excellent tensile strength of Aramid. Our full wet vacuum bag and foam core allows us to artfully balance strength and weight. For those that want significantly greater durability than StarLite, yet value a lightweight canoe. Exterior resin coated for maximum weight savings.

Color: Black carbon weave.

StarLite:

All Aramid. Our proprietary yellow and black makes a stunning moiré pattern. Full wet bag minimizes resin and creates the lightest weight canoe available. Foam core, ribs and internal reinforcements make a stiff, efficient hull. The choice of flat-water paddlers everywhere. Exterior resin coated for maximum weight savings.

Color: Northstar proprietary Aramid weave.

WhiteGold:

Innegra outer with Aramid reinforcements and foam core. An alternative to BlackLite that is economically priced, but at the expense of some additional weight and lowered durability. Exterior gel coated.

Colors: Spruce, Almond or Red.

 

 

Aramid is the generic name for Kevlar.

Trim Options

Aluminum:

Bronze anodized gunwales, thwarts and grab handles; thermoformed deck plates; ash portage yoke; laminated, contoured web seats hung on ash trusses.

Wood:

Oiled white ash gunwales; sculpted and laminated black walnut and ash end decks; walnut and ash laminated contoured web seats hung on walnut trusses; walnut and ash laminated thwarts and yoke; stem mounted tie down loops. Laminated black walnut and ash creates a distinctive and refined canoe that is stronger and lighter.
