    Does anybody have any information on a canoe builder in the Orillia, Ont. area by the name of Ross?

    Ross of Orillia

    The builder you ask about might be J.H.Ross of Orillia.
    There was a name change and re-location at one time in history.
    I had a Ross 15' fishingboat at one time and saw an inboard Kermath launch once. A beauty.
    Don't know much about his canoe building.
    In the Antique and Classic boat Society [Toronto] there's listed just one 'J.H. Ross' boat.
    Listed are about a dozen 'Ross'.
    Listed is one 'Ross Canoe Co.', owned by a person in 'A.C.B.S.' named 'Ross'.
