used throughout the 1900's in Campbell River, BC. Canada. Hilmark Boats continues a fine tradition of Wooden Boat Building, featuring Canadian

Painter from the 1920's until 1932 and then again in the 1950's

In 2001 Hilmark Boats. reintroduced the traditional all wood handmade row boat
built in Campbell River from 1918 to 1952.
During the past nine years we have had many
requests to copy our boat and produce it in fibreglass.
contracted a production facility whose staff has 87 years combined experience in building fibreglass boats.
As of this month we
will be adding to our line of boats a 14'4" fibreglass row boat. These boats will be trimmed in either mahogany, sapele,
douglas fir or yellow cedar with one rowing station and oars.
Selling price for this Fibreglass model will be $6,990.00 Canadian
The Canadian flag does not fly because the wind moves
past it. The Canadian flag flies from the last breath of
each military member who has died protecting it. Canadian
soldiers don't fight because they hate what's in ront of
them. They fight because they love what's behind them."
