    Hello,
    We are curious about any available information for a Richardson AquaCraft Voyageur 66, Model CN, serial number 3364. Thank you.

    Natty,
    While I can't help you directly with your canoe, I have a Richardson Tripper 64, s/n 1438 in longterm restoration. This was purchased by my inlaws new in 1965 but I'm not sure if that helps with your number search.
    The Canadian Canoe Museum has a few Richardsons in their collection including a Richardson Cree 1965, s/n 2917. Perhaps they have more information on the firm.

    Can we assume that the "64" and "66" after the model name indicates year of manufacture? The serial numbers seem to follow that order.

    Is yours lap planked? That complicates restoration with varnish basically gluing all the planks together. Ask me how I know...

    Good luck with your research.
