1929 All Wood Old Town.
This is an all wood wide board canoe made by Old Town only in 1929. It was a display in a store for many years, but shows no signs of how it was displayed. There are some condition issues that I can provide photos of if interested. There is no rot or soft punky wood on this canoe at all. The cracked bottom planks, damage to the tips on the stems, many loose nails, and broken pieces on the thwart mounts is the obvious damage that needs to be taken care of. The finish on the inside appears to be original. The paint on the outside is thin dry and would appear to be easily removed.
I've listed the boat at $1000 only because of not being sure of the value due to the fact that it is unusual and rare. It is #36 of around 50 made in 1929. That being said I realise I may be the guy putting an outrageous price on just an old wood boat or I'm giving away a rare treasure way to cheap. I will allow the best offer to determine the value.
