    Can anybody ID this deck ? The decal is oval and faded out so badly I can't make out letters.
    Haven't seen any single lobe decks before.
    Any ideas?

    I'll get some better pictures tomorrow.
    The inner gunnels come together peculiar also. Not to a mitered center point.

    This was acquired in northern Minnesota. That might help

    Tom,
    I’d guess Racine. They had a single lobe deck and oval decal.
    I have replica decals if you need one.

    Thanks for the info. It does have all the characteristics of a Racine. It also has half ribs, could that be a later addition?

    Half ribs were certainly an option. Unless they really don't look like they belong, they are probably original.

    They look to be the same material
