B.N. Morris - 0riginal - 1905-1910
B.N. Morris - original - 1905-1910-ish. No SN plate but there appears to be an oval shadow and nail holes on the bow deck. I'm told it is one of 200 left from original 20,000.
Type 1 heart decks, closed gunnels. 15 feet tops of stem to stern. Gunnel width ~ 30 with ~ 1 1/2” tumbledown so beam at 33. Depth top of gunnels to floor is 12”. To the charts this appears to be a Model A.
Needs some minor restoration or just paint to be usable.
History: acquired by family in the 50's when they moved to New Hampshire. We canoed NH ponds, Maine lakes and rivers, Adirondacks. No fast or rocky water. I paddle this many yeasr from age 10 on. 15 years ago, it came to my home in the Colorado mountains and I placed it as an architectural archway inside on timberframe brackets (included). It now needs an appreciative home.
Priced as is. Will talk and take more photos.
Transport: we had a friend mover give a transport cost. I then looked online for “Ride share” notices and found a happy traveler with roof rack - I paid gas costs of $200 and it was safely here in a few days.
