    Hate to see this.
    Looks to be in better shape than the one I'm restoring. Seat and thwart bolts aren't diamond headed so I don't think it's an Old Town. Cane seats and open gunnels. Big hole to pass the wiring through, and 3/8" bolts to attach the hanging chains.
    Didn't ask the price.
    At least it wasn't cut in half and loaded with Levis and sweaters. IMG_0018.jpg IMG_0018.jpg IMG_0020.jpg IMG_0019.jpg IMG_0021.jpg

    There are 2 wood canvas canoes at a local restaurant. Not light fixtures, but they're hung for display in a similar manner to the one in your photos. They're up pretty high and the lighting isn't the best, so I've yet to identify them. Someone with more knowledge could probably ID them easily. Seem to be in good shape. Looks like they put a new coat of paint on before hanging them. I missed a chance to ask the owner about them the last time I was there.

    Saw this 18ft OT sponson canoe bolted to our local REI store this summer. What is the rear seat set up for?

    This is a sailing canoe with a hole in the bow seat for the mast and the step is on the floor below it. The pictures at http://www.wcha.org/forums/index.php?threads/10672/ show one with the rest of the rig in place.
