    Can you help me ID this Canoe? I think it's an Old Town, Charles River maybe? Wood and Canvas. I'm not sure

    No idea what model, but if you put up the serial number from the stems you'll get a full description.

    The proportions suit your car very well!

    There is nothing on either stem, I'm not sure, maybe they were replaced?

    This certainly doesn't look like an Old Town but it is frequently difficult to tell what might have been replaced in previous repairs. An Old Town would have originally had serial numbers on both inside stems. The information at https://www.wcha.org/forums/index.php?threads/791/ may help you find them. These are the key to getting more information as Sam mentioned. Good luck,

    That looks a lot like a Mullins deck. Attached is one I had. I don't know if Mullins ever made a canoe that short.

    Yep, it is a Mullins. I restored one once that was signed and dated with pencil on the hull.

    There is more information and a couple scanned catalogs here: https://woodencanoemuseum.org/mullins
