First a quick intro. I have always loved wood/canvas canoes. My parents had a 17' Old Town when I was a kid and I just bought my first wood/canvas week ago. It's a 20'a, that's in need of some work. The front deck is 10 1/2" across and 12" down on each side and the rear deck is 11" across and 16" down the sides. here is the link to the pics of the canoe. http://s56.photobucket.com/albums/g179/sweeper54/Canoe/ I have not found any serial#s on the front stem and can't get the center planking up to look at the rear stem.
