The 36″ kit is a full featured kit just like the 54 & 72″ kits. The Poplar kit is the original and still very popular, or if you want a richer look, choose either the Red Cedar or Mahogany kits (seat frames, thwarts, bow & stern caps and toe rails). A contrast from the pine strips. There will also be 4 strips of Red Cedar or Mahogany for a striped hull layup. We recently purchased a very small weave cane webbing for the seat material for a realistic seat! The Deluxe kits include many extras such as your choice of Red Cedar or clear pine ribbing kit, a paddle kit, 6 stem laminates for real life laminated stem, 2 copper half round stem guards, lots of extras for only $20 more! Add the epoxy & cloth kit for a long lasting, durable canoe with an extremely deep high gloss finish in two coats. I hope the new drop down menu will make deciding which option easier. As always, please feel free to email me with any questions at all.
