    If anyone else has one of these they can compare. Mine is a 12 footer. It is well made. Has no keel, is red,and most significantly, has a sort of "wing" wrapping the bang strip at the top and in a way holding the gunnels. IMG_4421.jpg the bang strip end is likewise bent over and buried in the deck. Deck is large and thick IMG_4438.jpg forward seat attachment is unusual IMG_4431.jpg

    How did the idea come about that they used poor quality wood? Mine has very good wood throughout.

    I have a Huron that Mike Elliott found to be quite unusual dimensions, he'd never come across one at 17ft 10 inches and 40 inches beam. It seems to have its original Verolite skin.

    It is in my shed in the UK, awaiting work to commence in replacing its outwales, some ribs and planks and of its skin. I'll be putting a canvas skin on and hoping I don't offend anybody with the change of material.
