I picked up two Peterborough style canoes the other day. Both need work. Maybe someone can identify them for me. Unfortunately there is no name plate or serial numbers. Here are the stats. Peterborough #1 Longitudinal strip construction with ribs 5/8” wide on 2” centers. 15’10” length overall, 30.5” wide, 12” depth, thwarts are Oak and hollowed out on the bottom to reduce weight I presume. Oak outwales 1.25” wide. Decks 24”, good only for a pattern. It came with an unusual floor rack, 6’1” long, 12” wide with crossbars set up to nest on the ribs and keep it in place. Also came with a lateen sail rig, no leeboard or bracket. Peterborough #2 Longitudinal strip construction with ribs 5/8” wide on 2” centers, 16’3” length overall, 35” wide more or less, 12” depth, no thwarts, no outwales. No decks but it appears they were 24” long at least. Came with a bundle of half round rib stock. Attached are pictures of #1. I’ll attach pictures of #2 in next post. I don’t really need either one of these canoes so I will offer them to another WCHA member for a good price. Thanks, Jim C.
