Hi, I recently received a cedar strip canoe from a relative that has Wm English Canoe Co'y decals on both decks. It seems to be in pretty decent shape except where the wood has dried out and shrunk a little, so it leaks. I'm interested in finding out more about when this canoe was made. I read that the company was bought out in the early 1900s but the new company still used the old decals. Any idea when they stopped using them? I haven't been able to find a model or serial number anywhere on the canoe. It originally had a sail, but tragically, my relatives didn't think they'd ever use the sail so it was sold off. Yeah I cried inside . My great uncle, who was born in 1914, was the original owner and lived mostly in California but no one seems to know when he actually bought the canoe. I have more pictures that I can upload if needed, or check out my facebook page. I'm also interested in resealing/restoring the canoe so it doesn't leak but I'll check the repair forums for that. Thank you so much for any information anyone can provide about this canoe! facebook.com/WmEnglishAntiqueCedarCanoe Sorry that 4th pic is blurry. It was the first one I took and I was a bit excited when I saw the canoe for the first time!
