Hi, My father is trying to identify a canoe he is restoring. It looks exactly like the turn of the century canoe shown on the front cover of 'Canoecraft'. It is 15ft6" long and the serial number is 0296. This is stamped on both central thwart blocks, the underside of all three thwarts and the underside of both decks. Any information regarding the age, maker or type of sailing rig used would be most helpful. It also looks like it could have previously had a small keel between the brass stem bands would this have been likely? Any help would be much appreciated.
