    I found this on FB Marketplace an hour and a half away while I was traveling for work. Contacted a good friend in the area and he actually made the contact, bought the boat for me then delivered it to my son’s house. Three weeks getting home but got to see it for the first time today.
    Several photos below, no numbers or names. It came from a fishing/ boatbuilding community in NC called Harker’s Island. The guy said he used 2.5 oz glass on it and it appears he did a good job. No delamination and even at 18 feet long and 42” wide at gunnels and it isn’t too heavy for two people to put on a car.
    What can you all tell me about this boat?

    Welcome, your canoe doesn't appear to have any serial numbers on the stems so it was probably from a smaller builder or home made. The information at https://www.wcha.org/forums/index.php?threads/791/ may help you confirm that these numbers aren't hidden. Enjoy,

    Benson
