    Hello everyone, picked up this old/medium old canoe. Need help identifying it a bit more than what I know; which is this, it's at least 35 y/o, very probably build in Qc., and the rest is on the pictures. No trademarks/stickers visible, the thwarts are flat-bottomed, as got a mast pit/holder for sailing, flat bottom/keel, a slight tumblehome, and that's about it.

    Any good web sites and books that I should consult??

    Peterborough or Chestnut, after 1930s with a shoe keel. The sailing thwart was put in after as part of a kit, in most boats. Probably a low end Champlain, nice paddling boat.
