I just removed the deck from the 1922 OT HW that I've started to redo. Stripping all day The deck has what appears to be a place where a tag was once fastened. Did Old Town attach metal tags to their canoes back then? The spacing between the nails is about 1-3/8" and the tag was about 3/4" high. The deck is the original but it is going to be replaced. I've attached a picture of the deck.
