I stumbled across a couple of sights today of outfitters stating they carry "near north" canoes, anyone have any information on them? A quick google search didn't seem to find anything.

Found a reference to them here: https://www.longlakelodge.ca/canoes.htm

And, a different topic: I did not know that Northern canoes were actually Swift until now...

The boats in the photo don't look anything like Swift boats -- much more like Scotts.

Yes, this was one of the two sources I could find.. Seems odd. Id like to know more about them.

Since Long Lake Lodge claim to have "Scott or Near North" and there are really no other references to them anywhere else I'm going to guess that Near North is just a private label made by Scott (now Abitibi).

Scott (Mid-Canada Fibreglass) always produced boats for third parties under various names, would not be much of a reach to assume that Abitibi are doing the same.
