Canadian 15 Cedarstrip

   This 15 foot boat is styled after the 1940's sporty family runabouts so loved by cottagers on the lakes of Ontario. Available as a five passenger two cockpit outboard, they are built with a 5/16" planked cedar hull on 7/8" by 7/16" half round white oak ribs, and cedar V joint or mahogany plywood decks with appropriate yellow striping, mahogany transom with oak bracing. Cockpit coamings are white ash; dashboards are your choice of ash, cherry, oak, or bird's eye maple. Seats are cedar or pine. All fasteners are of brass, bronze or stainless steel, as required.    Finished with your choice of colour for bottom paint and your choice of colour/varnish combinations for topsides, and varnished decks and interior (8 coats). We only use the highest quality Epifanes yacht paints and varnish. Comes with chromed brass windshield frame and plate windshield in glass or lexan, forties style bow light, stern light, authentic push/pull light switch, period style steering wheel, Morse steering controls, three torpedo cleats, two rope chocks, six fender cleats, flag staff and Cdn. pennant style flag, bow and stern eyes for trailering, bilge pump, and brass builder's plate.
   We will keep as faithful to the original building methods as possible. The only places which we will vary will be in areas which we have the benefit of history to tell us that they were mistakes; such as using stainless steel screws in areas where brass isn't strong enough, instead of mild steel as they were originally built, or in using modern polysulphide seam compounds for bedding the planks to the stem and transom, instead of muslin soaked in white lead (illegal to use now). No corners are cut in the choice of materials, or in the time spent on building one of these boats.
   Appropriate power for these boats will range between 20 to 40 H.P. and will probably be determined by the size for your lake and expected use. If power trim and tilt are required, you probably won't get this on the smaller motors. The only way we will sell one of these boats is with a four stroke motor.
