Does anyone know anything about this old canoe?

    This canoe has been in our family for decades and nobody seems to know where it came from originally. It does have a name on the front but I can't really make out the actual letters. Is there anyone on this forum that can provide some information about it? I'm sorry about the pictures as I couldn't get the canoe down from the hangers in the garage to take better pictures.
    It is +/-14' with a +/- 30" beam.
    Thank you,
    Scotty

    You can search this forum for cold molded plywood canoes. There may be some info there. It may be a Haskell Canoe.
    Odd that it has what I would call bilge staves.
    They would have been attached to protect the hull on rocky river paddling.

    Hi Dave,
    Thanks for the response. I did hunt around but couldn't really find a close enough match...although I am a complete noob to the forum :D
    Cheers,
    Scott
