    I believe this canoe was the subject of another recent post....
    My take on it was that it was a Thompson Ranger...50's vintage...low shear.
    The extra wide stem band makes me think that there was an outer stem originally, which would be typical do this model. Looks like the decks, gunwales, seats, and possibly the thwarts have been replaced. Appears to be a nice serviceable wood/canvas canoe, none the less.
    Here is the post that I am referring to.... http://forums.wcha.org/showthread.php?12821-Can-anyone-I-D-this-canoe&highlight=Ranger
