By popular demand we can now offer you a Lakelander canoe kit!!!
The Lakelander is a 14ft tandem canoe approx 36" wide, she can have a slight rocker or keep her flat depending on your build.
At any point during the build you are welcome to contact us for advice.
A PDF instruction booklet is supplied as a guide.
Although building a canoe can be done by a complete novice woodworker we advise a basic level of woodwork skill if you are thinking of building this kit. You will need supply all your own tools for this build.
Have a look at our CANOE BUILDING WORKSHOPS if you think this is a bit beyond you!!!
The kit comes with all the materials you need to build the canoe (but not the resin sorry).
The planks are all pre cut but may need some (dressing) or a bit of plaining to take out any small lumps or bumps form the cutti ng process.
we use 6mm WBP Ply and recommend that the inside chine lines (joins of the planks) are fiber glassed tape. Epoxy resin normally needs a uv barrier applied, you can do this using a suitable varnish or paint.
We supply cable ties to stitch the canoe.
You will need to make up your seats using the wood supplied (rough sawn) with the kit, we supply ply as a seat base but you can fashion your own webbing seat if you want.
You can alway up grade to cane or webbing seats!! or a carrying yoke, or paddles! just add then to your shoping cart.
You will need to supply your own resin, we recommend Gurit SP 106 3kg pack, if you cant get hold of it as it is being discontinued look for Ampro.
