Construction

 

Three Layer Polyethylene

 

The Old Town Charles River is made from three Layer Polyethylene which has been used to manufacture canoes for decades. Made up of three layers, an inner layer of close cell foam is sandwiched between two layers of high-density polyethylene ensuring that the canoe has superior strength and durability while still remaining buoyant. The three layer polyethylene provides a lighter, stiffer and stronger build than that of a single layered canoe.

 

Three layer construction

Delivery

We offer a delivery service for the Old Town Charles River throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.

 

Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.

 

Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales
