Cedar Strip & Cedar Plank Canvas Canoes
For centuries boat builders have chosen ash and cedars and with good reason. Yes, you can use a less expensive or more exotic wood, but chances are it contains too much resin, is more brittle to work with, you'll end up building a lead-heavy canoe or it bucks tradition. Flambeau Canoes take these two traditional woods and apply modern woodworking technologies to strengthen and lighten a traditional canoe.
Cedar Plank Canvas Canoe.
functionality of the Prospector Canoe and the pronounced stern of
the Indian Girl, our design Lambeau, is a canoe may feels
best loaded with gear on a remote wilderness lake, but its best
designed for river tripping and small stream navigation making it
versatile enough to be a good all round canoe. We mix old world
crafting techniques with modern day materials to make a classic high
performance, ultra light and ultra strong canoe. Optional Kevlar
reinforced ribs and gunwales, Number 10 Duck Cloth, special
performance water/fireproof cloth filler and coatings of marine
paint, spar varnish and VU coatings. Stock colors Forest Green,
Midnight Blue and Van Gough Red. Special order colors are available.
Our design, the Thuja, is a showpiece
canoe with cedar strips showing on both sides. We mix the same old
world crafting techniques with modern day materials to make a
classic high performance, ultra light and ultra strong canoe. Dacron
aircraft fabric for ultra bonding and strength, PVA clear water
resistant glue for strip stock, special performance waterproofing
using a catalyzed polymer with iconic bonding and a VU poly varnish.
Accent this canoe with laminated veneer logos, designs or
personalization. Custom strips of various sizes and wood types can
be incorporated into the design.
Cedar Strip or Plank Display Canoes work perfect with
your cabin or lodge décor but are not intended for water use. Either
of the above versions are available complete or as a kit, less the
fabric and waterproof sealers. These canoes have a simple spar
varnish inside and out or can be made with a painted outer. It’s a
perfect conversation piece to hang in your rafters.
