Harkening back to the days when Voyagers learned to forge through Canada's hinterlands the way Native Americans did, Wanigans proved to be a most useful way of carrying heavy, awkward gear like kitchen supplies.
Your Inglis Watercraft Wanigan is decidedly more attractive than in the 1700's, but no less functional.
I based the design on one I saw some years back and went with the super-lightweight contoured cedar strip and fibreglass reinforced design with scuppered lid that sheds water.
Also notice the signature birch carrying handles in lieu of the hardy tumpline, for that added touch of tradition! Carry hard gear, extra clothes or pack a picnic lunch in style
