Jeff and Laurie Pedersen started STC in 2007. Jeff is an accomplished canoe racer and noticed that there was a need for paddle and canoe repairs at the local canoe racers. He has learned his skills from boat and paddle builders and has a reputation of high quality workmanship not only on canoes and paddles but anything made with composites such as motorcycle fairings and bike frames. Also they have added retail sales of canoes, paddles, accessories, car racks, paddle ergs and many more items that a marathon canoe racer could use.
