    Dear folks,
    A very special and ancient pair of Peterborough boats (canoe and craft) have been uncovered over in Scotland and I am helping the owner find out more about them. Any help would be most appreciated. I think they could be approximately 100 years old.

    The canoe Model is 30 and Serial 805. I believe the craft is 30/8058.
    They also have a stamp: Peter Bebbington, Engineer, 1781/1586, Glasgow.
    I have also contacted the Canadian Canoe Museum.

    Pictures attached,
    Many thanks
    All the best
    Sean, Pitlochry, Scotland

    Thank you for your help Paul - it looks like Peter Bebbington was active in 1904. I gather from other forums on WCHA that as the canoe has less than 4 digits in the number it is certainly pre-1939. Many thanks, Sean
