Another Morris vs. Kennebec canoe

Paul Miller

Canoe Nut
Hi,

The attached pictures are of a 16' Kennebec listed in our own classifieds. I have been looking for a 16' Torpedo model and asked for additional pictures of the stem profile.

Everything on this canoe looks Kennebec except for the stem profile. It should be round like an Otca or very recurved like a Molitor. Instead it looks classic Morris.

Any thoughts?


Paul

It doesn't have the Morris splayed stem, so in all probability not a Morris-built Kennebec. Otherwise looks like a typical Kennebec. If you get the serial number we can look it up.

Best,
Dan
 
My guess is a Skowhegan based on the stem and thwart shapes. Take a look at the catalogs on the CD and let us know what you think.

Thanks Benson,

I would say you are right on.

Canoe ID is one the most fun things to do on our site.

Don't worry Dan, if we were keeping score you'd be at the top.

Happy New Year!
