    Is there such a thing available as display decals. I'm working on a 8 foot display canoe 1929 Old Town? Looks the same as the large deck decal. though only maybe 1 inch high and maybe 1 1/2 wide. Dave

    No, the 1929 display canoe shown at http://www.wcha.org/forums/index.php?attachments/40529/ appears to have a paddle decal on the bow deck. Similar ones are shown at http://www.wcha.org/forums/index.php?attachments/26122/ for example. I don't know of anyone who is currently reproducing these today. That small decal was probably added when it was repaired in 1940 to replace a full sized one that would have been placed on the deck originally. See http://www.wcha.org/forums/index.php?attachments/38831/ for an example of an eight foot model from 1924 with a full sized decal on the bow. Good luck and let us know what you decide to do,

    Of course , I didn't think of a paddle decal. But if there's no one making them...... not sure what to do yet.
