I call it my Old Town Chimera. It looks like maybe a Guide from the first pic. But look closer. The front deck is on Old Town coaming type; but there's an ogee type deck at the rear! I figure the decks have to be original as there are no breaks in the rails where decks from two different canoes could have been spliced together. Plus the rails & decks each have the same amount of wear. The canoe came from a family in Newberryport Mass. The owner contacted me asking whether I would want it (silly question). Apparently he found me via a WCHA thread I had written about canvassing canoes. Plus not only did he travel an hour to deliver the canoe to me he also gave it to me for free! I must live right! The fella told me it was his dad's, and that he (the father) was an Old Town rep years ago. The father told him it was a special order, and I can believe it! He also said that 4 ribs were damaged in a white water trip and that the father had the canoe repaired by Old Town - perhaps in the 60's? At the same time (he thinks) the rear seat was replaced and moved forward by a few inches. The holes left in the rails by the old seat position are filled with diamond head screws cut just short enough to pass through the rails and take a nut. Mr Benson sir, some info please? The serial # is 174644-18.
