Build just completed – 3/17/2022
Canoe Dimensions: 16ft
Peterborough Canadien Canoe - very rare - collectors dream.
Peterborough "Canadien Model" 1427 or 1495 and most likely (according to wood canoe experts) mid-1940's.
Restoration just completed 3/17 with a test float on 3/18 - paddles nice and no leaks that I can determine.
The ribs are 5/8 half round and spaced 2" apart. A few planks were replaced.
Many thanks to Geoffrey Burke for his "boat soup" formula to help seal the canoe!
If you are a collector, this is one really hard to find and even more so in this solid and beautiful shape. Would make a perfect display canoe but, as you see in the pictures, also paddles very nice and can be used.
I can deliver to within 100 miles free of charge but added cost if greater distance. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
