Gunwales for Canoes (supplied full length for all designs)
4 piece gunwale set - inners ( 3/4" x 7/8" x length) and outers (5/8" x 7/8" x length).
Clear, straight grain, white ash, air dried
We supply air dried wood because it is easier to bend successfully. Our customers seldom have a problem installing gunwales because we supply air dried wood.
But, some canoes with large upswept ends (Redbird-Champlain-Huron Cruiser-Canadienne) MUST have a bending jig made and the gunwales steamed and bent over the jig and left for 4-5 days.
Without the pre bending on these models, there is a considerable risk that the ash will fail. Plus, it is so much easier to install pre bent gunwales.
Option: Ron will cut the scuppers for your inwales - additional cost $45. Please specify model of canoe.
This item requires custom shipping due to length. The freight will be calculated and charged separately pending your approval and prior to shipping.
