cherry came from , I believe it was from a mill in rural Maine and it was a 20 foot length.. hard to find. Then canoe builder friend planed it to thickness. It is not at all heavy. What I like best is that it is easy to maintain and does not get black spots.

Colden Canoe uses cherry too for wood rails. Not all of their boats have wood rails, I know. Probably for ease of maintenance. I know I never will go back to ash again because of the five cherry gunwaled boats I have look better with less maintenance. (Four were built that way.. I have only had to deal with gunwale replacement once)
