    Canadian Canoe Company model 46, cant remember the name offhand. Similar to Peterborough Mermaid or Chestnut Fox, later boat built on same form.

    The Canadian Canoe Company must have changed their model numbers after they stopped listing them in the 1951 catalog. The model 46 was a 17 foot long Tourist model in 1951 but the 14 foot long Breeze and Patrol were listed in their 1962 catalog without model numbers as shown below. More information like this is available from http://www.wcha.org/store/canadian-wood-canoe-and-boat-company-catalog-collection in the scanned catalogs.
