    The notes at http://www.uscgboating.org/recalls/mic_detail.aspx?id=WHC indicate that the WHC at the beginning is a manufacturer indentification code that was assigned to the White Canoe Company up until 1986. The site at http://www.boatsafe.com/nauticalknowhow/hin.htm says that the 80D on the end is for a November, 1980 date. A 1978 White catalog is available from http://store.wcha.org/The-Historic-...pany-Catalog-Collection-Version-2-CD-ROM.html in the Historic Wood Canoe and Boat Company Catalog Collection. This shows that "Light Green" and "Dark Green" were among the six available colors but not much other information is available. Sorry,

    Benson

    Thanks so much Benson, good information and fun to know!
    Is that your name on the Editor list of the Catalog Collection? That sounds like fun for sure. Nice picture for cover art :)
    enjoy and thanks again
