Looking for research and history

    I'm looking for information or history about this canoe.
    The pictures were taken while it's hanging from the rafters.

    It has been stored in our garage for many years. I tried to see a number using a flashlight and ladder. It looks like there may have been a plate attached, at one time, on the bow deck. (see picture) Other than that, I couldn't see any identifying marks.

    I have fond memories floating French Creek with my Dad and Grandpa in her when I was a kid. I'll bet the last time she saw water was in the 1960s.

    I'm in my 60s now and I'm curious to find any information anyone could offer.

    Nice looking boat, good shape. Serial numbers are most important but lacking that, seats and a closeup of the ribs will help.
    Welcome to the fold.
