The Grand Laker canoe is the newest addition to out fleet of scale replica canoes. The Grand Laker was originally built when the advent of the outboard became available to the public. Before the introduction of the outboard, the guide canoes along with their fishing or hunting clients were often towed the long distance to the other end of the lakes by a ferry service on Moosehead lake in the morning, and then caught a tow at the end of the day, until someone decided to modify their canoe to take an outboard. Now the guides could go anywhere, anytime and faster.
The “Laker” as we’ll call it, is built the same way as the other kits using the same materials and proven method. The epoxy kit (optional) is a real winner along with the CNC cut outboard kit, which in itself was a lot of work to produce. The outboard kit contains 18 pieces that get stacked and glued and then sanded and painted, then the decal set is applied. Add one of the large wall or table mts to show it all off. A real show piece that is with in the abilities of anyone who is well versed with basic wood working tools.
