.The 54″ E.M. White guide canoe model is our mid-sized canoe kit. 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 11 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. This has been a huge improvement over the old method of using brads and pins. More detail can be added throughout. The real seat caning material for life like seats, soft copper half round for the bow and stern guards, wood laminates for the stem and stern stems, and Red Cedar or white pine ribbing available for all canoe kits really makes it stand out. A great mid-size model finishing out at about 52″ long, 10″ wide and about 4.5″ deep, end to end. Comes with full instructions along with a DVD with four different assembly videos.
