96" Wood Strip Canoe , the largest canoe kit out there!
Very pleased with the new 96" long wood strip canoe kit. Many new changes with the design. Much more recurve in the bow and stern to look more like the Charles or older Old Towns. Also a little wider and flatter bottom. Alaskan Yellow cedar ribbing, or Red Cedar along with all finish parts are REd Cedar. The large clear pine strips are 5/8" wide so the lay up builds quickly. We found also the thickness of the strips in relation to the width, allowed them to easily conform to the twists, thus laying very flat. Less sanding at the end. Cover it with the clear epoxy and 3 oz cloth. I also used the white Gorrila wood glue which i was very pleased with . The swooping bow and sterns were a little tricky with bending the inner and outer toe rails. Had to be very careful doing this, being sure to use a lot of clamps. I will be making a video of the build and posting more photos. Let us know if you have a specific preferance of woods. I will be turning the one i built into an over head light chandelier with 4 flat soft white LED lights.
