How many canoes has the roof of the van seen? Number is always climbing!
Characteristic Arrowhead decks. Makes the end of the canoe stem/gunwale joint, a usual weak spot, much stronger. Carry thwarts, again more typical of American craft.
Remnants of stain, making for a nice dark interior
Half ribs, a distinctly American feature
Very nice lines, this model a 17 footer
Still in original canvas
Much nicer lines than a modern stripper canoe
Nice sheer and upturn in the ends
A great find, although needing a complete restoration and over a dozen ribs and planking, this old girl was in her original canvas, with the extra cost options of half ribs and outside stems.
We enjoy discovering new (old) canoes and boats, if you have or know of one for sale we would appreciate hearing from you. A lot of these old boats deserve to get back on the water, and to have their history perserved.
