    Would like any available information on a Shorty Bilt canoe( Solon Maine) 12’ circa 1956-1962. Wood and canvas ?
    Has anyone ever heard of this company and what are the build materials?
    I assume it is canvas but cannot tell from the photos I have.
    Thanks in advance,
    Derek

    Shorty is listed in the WCHA list of Maine Builders as working 1956-1966: http://wcha.org/catalogs/maine-list.htm

    I'd like to add the decal to the decal images page at my Wooden Canoe Museum site, if you would be willing to send me a good photo of it.
