At an antique auction in Rhode Island last week I saw this wonderful Robertson sitting in the parking lot, and it was the first item to be sold. In looking at it closely, I saw that it had my name on it, so I bought it and brought it home to add to the other canoes I haven't restored yet. It is in very good condition, with no broken ribs, planking, or gunwales. It appears to have its original interior finish, and its original canvas. The gray paint is over what appears to be a light green hull, with a maroon stripe down the sides, edged with yellow or gold pinstriping. In searching the archives, I see that not much is known about the Robertson chronology, as related to the numbers on the stems. This canoe has closed gunwales, so is fairly early. I would certainly appreciate more information, or referrals to m.b. postings that I may have missed. Thank you.
