All the strips measure 1/4" x 13/16" ; all are clear Western Red Cedar, vertical grain, full length and milled so that the 8 strips from any one board are packaged together exactly as they lay in the original plank which allows for symmetrical patterns; variety of colours as available in our inventory.
The BASIC PACKAGE (72 strips) will build most of the kayaks from plans available through Bear Mountain Boat Shop. If you plan to build the True North or the double kayak (Reliance) your kit will contain 80 strips. We have worked with the same production mill in British Columbia for many years. They select the boards we are after from many days of milling operations. After kiln drying, they are shipped direct to the company in the Toronto area which does the actual production of the strips.
When we receive these bundles of strips, we sort by length and colour and make up kits of 72 or 80 for shipment to our customers.
Also, consider our accurate CNC cut station molds.
This item requires custom shipping due to length. The freight will be calculated and charged separately pending your approval and prior to shipping.
