This beautiful Canoe is handcrafted from beautiful strips of 100% Canadian western red cedar wood (a very rare, soft yet very strong timber). The hull is then covered with an invisible layer of clear fiber glass cloth which is bonded with watertight clear epoxy resin and is then coated with marine varnish. This combination of fiberglass & epoxy is very strong & abrasion resistant and completely transparent so that the beauty of the wood shows through while protecting it for generations.
This Cedar-strip canoe is completely hand built by skillful and creative master craftsmen, using a process called Strip-building which is a method of boat building commonly used for canoes and kayaks, but also suitable for larger boats. The process involves securing narrow, flexible strips of wood edge-to-edge around temporary forms. The strips are secured to each other with epoxy glue. The roughly covered hull is then smoothed and reinforced with fiberglass cloth & epoxy before removing it from the forms. The inside is then smoothed and similarly reinforced.
The canoe is built without ribs, this allows you to view the beautiful uninterrupted pattern of the cedar strips. This also keeps the canoe lightweight and at only 50 pounds one person can easily carry the canoe. When you are not out enjoying the canoe on the water, the canoe can make a striking display. Included with this cedar strip canoe boat is a set of show grade wooden paddles and a canoe slip cover to protect the canoe during transportation and from the sun.
This wooden canoe measures 187.5" inches (15.6 feet) long from bow (front) to stern (rear). It's a show stopping canoe that is sure to attract attention on & off the water and to become a treasured family heirloom.
