Gator Boat Co. Wooden Boat Plans for the Novice Boatbuilder.


Hand Made Solid Cypress Boat Paddles

Now that you have your new wooden boat built and finished, how do you get from the dock to your fishin' hole (or retrieve your hat after a stiff gust)?  You need a hand made paddle! 

What better accessory for your newly completed wooden boat than a handmade, solid cypress paddle?  Now we don't waste time around here with overly fancy show boats, and the same holds true for our paddles.  Forget about laminated strips, our Gator Tails are carved out of a single plank of swamp cypress, they're handmade, so they have a little variation, not like those store brands imported from China that delaminate after a few months and a couple of whacks at your brother-in-law.  Best of all, it's pure Cypress, so even after years of wear, it's not going to rot out on you. 

We will send your paddle unfinished so that you can match it to your boat, or we will finish it for you with marine poly for no extra charge, but once it's coated, you can't alter the color with stain.

So let old Cajun Bob make you a paddle, he'll even hand-stamp it for you...but hurry, Bob isn't getting any younger and we don't know how long we can keep him at the workbench!
