An acquaintance of my sister's posted a couple of days ago that they were moving and their HOA wouldn't let them keep watercraft outside on the property. Not having room to keep it in the garage, they were getting rid of their canoe and its trailer. If I could come and get it before midnight Saturday, it was all mine, with no transaction required. The canoe and it's very solid trailer would be mine, free of charge. She told me she thought it was aluminum. When I arrived to pick it up, it was inverted, wrapped in a tarp cocoon, up on sawhorses. Apparently it's been there a while. Much to my surprise there was no aluminum to be found. It's a wooden canoe with a fiberglass (?) shell and sea-worthy as far as she knew, if a little rough. I've dreamed of finding something like this but never believed that I would. I did a little research and that research led me here. She has the diamond bolts. She has what I assume is the older model rear deck as it's not a match to the one in the video that led me here. It's a 17 footer, according to the serial number, which is on both stems, but there are no diamonds for seat placement and the open gunwales are fairly low so I assume it never had them. I'd like to restore her and get her back in the water, so she's my winter project. I'm going to shoot for either the first day of Spring or May Day. But if it takes longer, that's okay. Anything worth doing is worth doing, is worth doing correctly. And the best place to start the process is to find out her origins. Can someone please locate the history of that serial number please? 120181 - 17. Thanks so much.
