I am impressed with the quality and professionalism that I met when I ordered Kayak equipment. The respons to my questions was quick and accurate. The next time I will order something for me or my kayak I know where to look.

My Dad's 1940 Old Town Canoe hadn't seen water since 1980 and was rotting away in my backyard. CCB brought it back from the dead and with it great childhood memories of paddling with my dad. The restoration was a dream of mine and Ralph made it a reality.

I just want to tell you how happy I am with my purchase of the Nova Craft "Bob Special" Canoe. ... I find the canoe to be an exceptional solo canoe and very stable fishing platform. I would recomand the Bob Special to anyone wanting a canoe versatile enough for solo or tandem paddling and stable enough to fish from.

Thank you for your help and good service.

The Salazar family hapily thanks the Chicagoland Canoe Base for the tips and products that you offered us to build our first canoe abd because of you, we were able to have a wonderful experience with our canoe. At first we never imagined what dind of experience we were going to ger from a simple visit to your store, but for the first day we paddled down the river, the sunset became our enemy. Now there is not a day where we don't plan a canoe trip with our family. This is a gift we have received from Chicagoland Canoe Base. So thank you once again from all our family and we wish you the best of luck and hope that you keep inspiring more people to canoe.
