    Would anyone be able to point me to where I might be able to find the build records for this boat? She will be getting her gunnels lightly sanded and a coat of spar varnish. One of the stem bands has been broken and is missing the lower half so will be picking up two new brass bands. We will need to build one foot brace, but have one to pattern from, and I will be building 4 original oars from ceder. Luckily the oars from the dippy are a match right up to the "pegs". She is a thing of beauty and I can not wait to get her in the water!

    No records survive for the Peterborough Canoe Company. The four-digit model number tells us the canoe was built between 1940 and 1963
