Really sad to see this article:
"...Mid-Canada Fiberglass has gone into receivership and will be closing their doors after 53 years of making canoes and kayaks. Though you might not have heard of the company name Mid-Canada, you have probably heard of their extensive product line including Scott Canoe, Bluewater Canoes and Impex Kayaks (also once known as Formula Kayak)....."
If you live in Ontario, you may score an awesome deal on a kayak/canoe...
"...Wilderness Dreams Adventure Store and Scott Canoe in New Liskeard is having one final massive liquidation sale, for 2 days only. Everything must be sold. This Saturday Nov 30 and Sunday, Dec 1, 2013 from 9AM to 5PM. Come in and check out the best prices you have ever seen on, canoes, kayaks, paddling gear, clothing, footwear, camping gear, and so much more. Drop in to the location by the hospital in New Liskeard at 156457 Clover Valley Rd., New Liskeard, Ontario. This sale is being conducted by msi Spergel Inc. Court-Appointed Receiver for Mid-Canada Fiberglass Limited...."

Every impex kayak I ever saw was clean and well-made. The Force series is almost legendary.
That's bad news|

Impex made some really well constructed boats and well thought out.

As a former Impex dealer and force 5 owner I am so sad to see this.

Is no longer for sale! Love this boat, meticulous craftsmanship, huge amount of storage which is great for expeditions, but just a little large for me. I'm getting older, I'll probably grow into it! lol . Too bad about the company failure.
that sounds about right CE...|
