Curious about Wooden Canoes
I recently purchased a 1924 18' Old Town Guide's Special, serial number 81675-18. I am in the process of restoring it, and it appears to be missing its center thwart. However, I was under the impression that the Guide's Special model didn't have a center thwart, but two quarter thwarts. The accompanying ad shows only two thwarts, but that might be the 16' model. Does anyone have concrete evidence either way? And if there is a center thwart, was it a standard thwart or a portage yoke? Thanks for the help.
