    Hi Fred,

    Looks like a Peterborough to me. The model is a little harder to determine. It could be a late model 604, an Otonabee, a 16S or an early high end Champlain. All of those models were built on the same form and in various grades.

    The Canadian Canoe Co also sold versions of the Peterborough high end Champlain and the Otonabee called Hiawatha and Habitant.

    Millie Sass and I removed some planking and the number 604 was written on one of the ribs...

    It was located on the 3rd rib back on the starboard side of the bow end. Planking was removed to expose stem for tip repair.
