So this fine piece came in today, and need help (a little!) with getting a bit of a pedigree for it.

    Here are a few specs: 192''X33''X11,5 or 11,75''. Ribs are 1 3\4''X 3\8''- 7\16'' non-tapered, planks are 3 5\8''X 3\16''.
    And some pictures.

    None that I can see...
    I'm thinking Old Town. The owner thinks Peterborough...

    An Old Town would have serial numbers on the stems and slightly different decks. My guess is a Chestnut, Peterborough, or PeterNut.

    After taking a bit of time, I think it's a Rideau\604/16S. Need to find the year of construction.

    Hi Serge,
    I think you have a later Peterborough Champlain.
