    Would Like To Identify ...who built this canoe

    I have refinished this canoe and have wondered since purchasing it what make and model it may be.It is a big canoe and very stable.Also quite easy to handle in the water and able to hold a good amount of weight with lots of freeboard.
    I had heard that this boat was purchased in 1939-40 and brought to northern Ontario.
    Length ....... 16'
    High end..... 25"
    Width........ 36 1/2"
    Depth........ 14"
    The ribs are 1 3/4" x 5/16" with 1 1/2" spacing.There are 4" cant ribs at bow and stern also.
    This canoe has no numbers anywhere that I was able to locate.
    I have heard it could be a high end Peterborough Champlain or a Canadian Chestnut/Old Town but not sure ?

    I am still needing help in identifying this canoe.........
