    Coanbu Curious about Wooden Canoes

    I pulled the canoe that has been living in the back of my parents barn and am deciding what to do with it. I was wondering if anyone has any idea what it might be. The pictures I took are probably not the best for such a question but I thought I might as well get it out there and see if anyone had any thoughts. I have no reason to think it was anything special. I am currently at sea (well lake) until the end of November, but when I am home I am going to take a closer look to asses its condition and see if I can find any identifying marks I might have missed when I pulled it out.

    Forgot to include that it is a 16 footer and was originally purchased second hand near Huntsville, Ontario.

    Looks to be a Langford, which would make sense given the history of purchase
