    Occasionally old canoes show up with very narrow ends, mortised thwarts, and a single seat in the stern but no other identifiable characteristics. The advertisement from the March, 1898 edition of "The Maine Central" railroad magazine shown below indicates that these may have been made by Gould Brothers canoe builders from Brewer, Maine. They were also listed in the 1902 edition of the New England Business Directory and Gazetteer. Please reply here if anyone has any more information about this builder. Thanks,

    Benson

    THIS CANOE LOOKS VERY MUCH LIKE MY UFO BENSON. MY TWARTS ARE NOT MORTISED, BUT LOOK TO BE THE SAME SHAPE. BOW PROFILE IS CORRECT AND THE SINGLE STEARN SEAT WITH THE SAME CANING. . I WISH THE DECK PICS WERE VISABLE.
