Alaska Canoe Experience

Marvin Oliver

Marvin is a world-renowned artist in many mediums. Being a Native American, his culture and heritage are very important to himself and his family.

Marvin scanned a classic wood canoe and recreated it down to the finest detail in foam. Plans were to introduce the canoes to the bays of Ketchikan Alaska. These canoes are manned by Native Americans skilled in their culture. You can paddle these canoes while learning their history, hearing Native songs and experience a ride of a lifetime.

Sunbacker took this Styrofoam pattern and created a car finish, keeping the close tolerances. From the plug, we created a mold and several canoes to set up this canoe experience. Every aspect of these canoes from floatation to the carbon fiber hulls have been analyzed and perfected. The canoes are amazingly stable and rigid. The wood canoes were carved and perfected with each carving. We copied these revisions with very close tolerances, recreating these masterpieces.
