Just completed a 16' 1941 Yankee, serial # 131955-16. I got this back in December at the same time I picked up the Molitor I posted about a few days ago. Keen eyes will note the removable seat backs. I've made these for several canoes over the years. I've got a buyer for the canoe lined up who was interested in having them. Keen eyes will also note that my grass needs cutting. Can't cut grass and work on canoes at the same time. Decision made.
