Nick Schade started Guillemot Kayaks in 1993 as an outlet for the kayak designs he was creating for his own use. An avid kayaker and lover of all small boats, Nick's designs are for those who care about the performance of their small boat.

Ted Moores and Joan Barrett started building boats in 1972 with the dream of a bucolic life in Canadian cottage country and started Bear Mountain Boats shortly after. Ted went on to pioneer many of the techniques currently used to make epoxy and fiberglass sheathed cedar strip canoes. Over the years he has documented a variety of the traditional canoes used around Canada, designed a few of his own and teamed with Steve Killings to create modern interpretation of traditional designs as well as creating brand new canoes, kayaks and small boats intended for strip built construction.
