Sad news for canoe enthusiasts; Canadian manufacturer Esquif has ceased production and is closing down. Esquif built a reputation on well-built, cutting-edge whitewater designs. Recently, they made news with their promising replacement for Royalex, the now out-of-production ABS plastic composite that had been the premier material for whitewater hulls. T-Formex, as it is called, now faces an uncertain future. Canoeroots magazine has some of the details: http://www.rapidmedia.com/canoeing/categories/news/4623-esquif-canoe-ceases-production.html
