Tiger Canoe and Kayak
Owners: Tiger and Jackie Taylor
They have building canoes since 1994. I'm not actually sure where they are based because their Web site address is Bass Lake, California and their Web site says they build Hawaii, Australia, and the mainland. And at least one other site says they are based in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island.
