Ash Gunwales - Knockdown Kit
Start with a full set of four ash gunwales, two to use for inwales, two for outwales. Same Mad River profile as our full length gunwales. Each stick comes in three pieces, containing two 6-inch long scarf joints. Assemble the marked, grain matched joints with the included epoxy and you're back to the original length of eighteen or twenty foot length. Two rails in the twenty foot set hava a full length kerf, perfect to cap the roughly 1/8 inch hull thickness of most fiberglass/Kevlar canoes. All four gunwales in the eighteen foot set have a flat back, making a universal sandwich-the-hull installation on any canoe up to seventeen feet.
If you're handy with a screwdriver and like to hang out in the garage, this is a canoe repair project for you. Not sure? Take a look at our wood gunwale installation tips.
