Cedar Strip Canoe Wooden Display Model 9.8′ Flat Matte Finish
This museum quality, highly detailed, Canoe display model is Brand New, fully assembled and ready for display (not a kit).
The Canoe is manufactured by “Woodenboat USA” (formally Grande Canoes) a division of our fully assembled model ship & boats company OMH Inc. Woodenboat USA has more than 30 years of wood working experience and a passion for the water crafts they build. All Woodenboat USA Canoes & Kayaks come with a 6 month limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship.
This beautiful Canoe is handcrafted from beautiful strips of 100% Canadian western red cedar wood (a very rare, soft yet very strong timber). The hull is then covered with an invisible layer of clear fiber glass cloth which is bonded with watertight clear epoxy resin and is then coated with a flat matte marine varnish. This combination of fiberglass & epoxy is very strong & abrasion resistant and completely transparent so that the wonderful thing about the wood shows through at the same time as protecting it for generations.
This Cedar-strip canoe is completely hand built by skillful and creative master craftsmen, the usage of a process called Strip-building which is a method of boat building commonly used for canoes and kayaks, but also suitable for larger boats. The process involves securing narrow, flexible strips of wood edge-to-edge around temporary forms. The strips are secured to each other with epoxy glue. The roughly covered hull is then smoothed and reinforced with fiberglass cloth & epoxy before removing it from the forms. The inside is then smoothed and in a similar fashion reinforced.
The canoe is built exactly the same as our full size canoes and is very seaworthy, but it is small only 9.87 feet long and is meant for display. It would make an ideal canoe for young kids, the canoe only weighs 27 lbs (a benefit of strip building). This canoe has had ribs installed to make it even stronger and more stunning. Included with this model is a wooden paddle.
Each canoe is uniquely identified by a serial number, which is laser
cut to the hull of each canoe. We may be able to identify
the production date of a canoe, the material that was used on the canoe, the craftsmen who worked on each area of the canoe, the
individual who inspected the canoe and also the professional packaging
staff. Quality is our number 1 priority, thus all steps are thoroughly
supervised from the beginning to the end of making each canoe.
This display canoe measures 118.5″ long from bow (front) to stern (rear). It’s a show stopping canoe model that is sure to be a conversation piece for any large room, lodge, restaurant or pub.
