This canoe is the E. M White 18' 6" Guide. It was made by world renown builder Jerry Stelmok, owner of the Island Falls Canoe Co. in Atkinson, Maine.
In 1975 Jerry Stelmok purchased the Island Falls Canoe Co. and along with Rollin Thurlow of Northwoods Canoe, gradually increased the awareness of these fine wood and canvas canoes and increased production.
Today Island Falls Canoe produces a number of E.M. White original designs, and adaptations of White classics, using the finest native white cedar, quality woven canvas, traditional bronze and brass fastenings, and the finest traditional paints and varnishes
This 18'6" Guide has proven itself a near perfect traveling canoe for about a century. It has a slight arch across the bottom, rocker, narrow entries and a classic sheerline that looks great and keeps the rough water out. A model of proven superiority by generations of foresters, wardens, campers, and guides. It has a 36" beam and 12.5" depth.
It is in excellent, lightly used condition, always stored indoors, not much different than a new boat.
It has all the upgrades - half ribs, black cherry trim, cherry portage yoke, hand caned seats, Duluth Pack leather tumpline, and two-tone paint/shellac bottom. Price is $2200 less than buying new with all upgrades, taxes and shipping.
