After this ad was placed with some Canadian sites as well we received a comment from a chap in St Thomas Ontario who revealed the following :
“..Nice ad. You may want to promote that this canoe was built by the Master Ted Moores of Bear mountain Canoes who built a canoe for Prince Charles and Diane for their Wedding gift as a gift from the Canadian government (Pierre Elliot Trudeau picked it) Trudeau's family has one as well. The builder Ted is the Godfather of the cedar strip canoe.”
