    These four paddles came with a 18 foot 1916 OT Charles River. Could a paddle expert give me an estimate of the age and source? Starting at the left is an Old Town Paddle made of ash. Then two paddles with 9 3/4" blades. Fourth is an Old Town paddle made of spruce. I am especially interested in the large bladed paddles. It must have been Paul Bunyon who wielded these.

    Many thanks for any help and information.

    Sorry, can't help with the ID, but do agree that those middle two are MASSIVE!
