White Salmon Boat Works has been building boats for many years, and we have spoken with a variety of different types of want-to-be builders, either at fairs, shopping malls, boats shows, or with the person who walks into our boat shop. So throughout the years we have developed what we think are a few good time tested kit scenarios for our customers. We use only the finest of materials in each kit we put together, such as: Tight Bond II glue, System Three SB 112 boat builders epoxy, Z - Spar's Flagship Varnish, full length, clear and knot free western red cedar milled to`1/4" x 3/4" x ? - length of the boat selected.
Our kits prices may cost a little more than many other kit builders, however when you compare the contents of our kits with other providers, you will easily see the value you receive. We are THE ONLY kit provider that supplies the complete strongback and the saddle supports. We want you to compare prices and contents from other canoe/kayak builders before you buy a White Salmon Boat Works kit.

14 or 16 foot Wherry Row Boat
The White Salmon Boat Works team is proud to offer this beautiful row boat in a complete or partial kit form. We take great care building and cutting out each part for this beautiful row boat. White Salmon Boat Works are the only kit builder to supple the solidly built pre-made plywood strongback with form braces. We actually construct the strongback, secure the form blocks to the strongback, and then we add the forms and gussets’. Next we then align and fine tune the forms so the strips will perfectly fit. Now we clearly mark each piece and then disassemble each piece and box them for shipping. Another unique item is the two sturdy saddles the boat will sit on during the construction of the inside of the boat. As you see this is no easy quick throw it tighter project.
