Curious about Wooden Canoes
I have an old canoe in my possession that I was told is a Bob's Special. The question I have is, is it possible for a Bob's to be a little narrower than 37"? Now this old gal has broken gunwales so my measurements could be wonky. All other measurements match up with a Bob's, with the beam being 35.5 at the gunwales, and just over 36.5 at about the water line. It has no serial numbers, and I was told that it could have been made by a Chestnut employee for themselves, hence no need for the serial number. It appears relatively flat bottom, with what I call moderate rocker.
