Canoe Carrying Yoke

    Prompted by a post where someone noted that carrying yokes are often missing on old canoe, I thought I would post these two pics of a old yoke sitting in an antique store in Malone NY. Maybe they are important or maybe not. I seem to recall a $30 price tag on em. (sorry pics aren't too good but maybe someone recognizes them, I don't) Very old upholstery tacks secure fabric (vinyl-ish) to wood. Also, pad are mounted on an angle to the yoke, instead of inline with long axis of canoe.

    Scott....your images are not accessible.
    It's the center thwart that is often missing...they vanish when folks replace them with yokes;)
    I just scanned another Morris related post that describes a missing thwart.
    Any old canoe hardware is interesting so hopefully you can re-post your pictures.
    Interesting things turn up around Malone...that's truly North Country.
