    Barry Greene Curious about Wooden Canoes

    Hi I’ve been in touch with the Canadian canoe museum they have supplied the attached info suggesting that this could be a match for my canoe, due the the distinctive full length longitudinal batons. The museum don’t have a HL Bastien in their collection I was wondering if anyone has a similar canoe we could compare pictures or any information on the company such as additional brochures or adverts so I can confirm my canoes origins

    For pics of my canoe please see pics posted a couple of months ago

    It won't help you id your canoe so much, but about the only history of H. L. Bastien I am aware of is in a booklet titled The Boat Builders of Hamilton (from the mid 1800s t0 present), which is available here:
