54″ EM Guide Canoe kit


The 54″ Red Cedar Deluxe kit is scale model of the famous E.M. White guide canoe. This  model is our mid-sized canoe kit with all the same features as the bigger canoe kits. Some say it is a little easier to build than the smaller kits, since everything is larger. As with all the canoe kits, it comes with 13 CNC (computer) cut frames with the centers removed to facilitate using the 4″ Harbor Freight slide clamps to hold the strips in place as the glue dries. The real seat caning material, soft copper half round for stem guards, stem laminates and choice of either Red Cedar or white pine ribbing. The ribbing really makes it stand out.  A great mid-size model finishing out at about 53″ long, 10″ wide and about 4.5″ deep, end to end. Comes with full written instructions and the  DVD showing the assembly of three different canoes and one kayak. Start building yours today! Click here to download & print color brochure (PDF file)
