Custom Wood Trim comes with straight grain ash inner and outer gunnels. Black walnut end plate decks with ash thwarts, hand grips and yoke provide an appealing visual effect. This finish is available on all standard models. In wet climates like the northwest, wood trim canoes should be stored inside. Overall canoe weights will increase 3 to 6 pounds. All surfaces are hand-sanded many times, and multiple coats of oil are applied by hand.
Note: For Canoes Like The Tripper, Tripper S And Sea Clipper, The Standard Sliding Bow Seats (Bucket) And Footbrace Should Still Be Used. Wood Web Seats Hung From The Gunnels In These Models Will Result In A Higher Center Of Gravity
