A couple years ago I restored my first wood canvas canoe - a 1920"s Thompson Brothers belonging to a friend. I love carpentry especially new and challenging work on heirloom quality items. Only one problem, I had to give it back when done. So, I searched and found a project for myself. Skin off, rot damaged gunwales, a few other of the usual suspects. Game on! Research on this forum leads me to believe it may be a Racine Boat Co but it does not show all the identifying traits mentioned in the knowledge base. Any help identifying would be of interest. 18' long (18'6" longest measure) with heart shaped decks, ribs not nailed to inner gunnel (brass screws through both gunnels from exterior), POC or cypress gunnels, sheer plank joined at mid ship, some ID numbers stamped in bow rib (see photo). It has been rebuilt at least once previously with seats hung from gunnels with aluminum rods and long SS bolts. Plan to keep this post updated with progress reports and photos. Thanks for much information, tips and advice learned here.
