I first thought it might be a Rushton, but then learned that there were many makers of such boats in the Finger Lakes region. Any help appreciated.

    Wow for me too, as I just saw this response to my older question. Thanks all!
    I have too many irons in the fire, so if someone out there would like to have a crack at restoring this old gal, feel free to contact me with a reasonable offer or trade. I live in Northern Pennsylvania.

    Hi, Jimbo.........I'm just curious as to how you may have made out on the " old gal ". I thought you offered up a very fine old tale of what we come across. I hope someone gets to it. It would make for a fine story in the WCHA publication. Dave
