What is she? 20' 43" on the beam.....any help would be helpful. I've been researching with no luck.
Looks like an E. M. White (or White Canoe Company) canoe to me. It'd be a Guide model.
Thanks Dan Miller, I agree, but the deck, serial number , and beam don't see to match up with any E.M. White 20'.
I agree with Dan that it certainly looks like a White. Their Guide models frequently had decks like this. The White serial number formats changed often and mistakes happened. The beam of a 20 foot long Guide model on a price list from the early 1950s was 40 inches but variations were common. Does the bow deck have an oval shadow and two nail holes from a missing tag? Is the planking beveled? These stem bands and the metal trim on the decks are not commonly found on canoes from any other builders.
Benson, Dan, thanks for your time. I believe your correct. she is beveled, there is no shadow. I'm thinking she a have been restored at one time and he shadow may have been sanded out. She certainly has White lines. The canoe was left for me from an old friend that had recently passed. Than you again for your expertise.
