17' J.R. Robertson, seeking identity

lepton

New Member
I just picked up a 17' short deck Robertson and am looking for someone to assist with dating the canoe and finding its specific mold model. Attached find the photos i have taken of the canoe. It did come with a Robertson tag/name plate (no photo), which leads me to believe it was one of his own builds (and not a livery model). The serial numbers stamped on the stems read 1895 17. See pics for more info. All repairs were done by the previous owner. Thank you in advance for any further information.

Can't be too specific about the date, but it is a more recent one, probably from the 1920s or 1930s as it has open gunwales and the later Robertson style deck.

Model depends on the beam, looks like a Robertson model from here.
