The plate is similar to the one you had shown.
Ours appears to be narrower and the area where the one indicates model # on ours there is just a box with the number 16 then serial 4338 and below that where yours shows "cedar strip" ours says "canvas covered".
I suspect that you have a fairly early Champlain model. Pictures might help. Unfortunately there are no remaining records that can date a Peterborough canoe. Carefully check the upper stem faces inside the canoe for other numbers.
There are several Peterborough models of various vintage with those dimensions, specifically such as Champlain Pleasure, Algonquin Cruiser, plus all the models that have dimensions close to those noted (and dimensions can vary sometimes from build to build, and can be different slightly than those given)....checking for serial number stamped in wood on bow stem certainly should tell exactly what model....if there of course....and photos definitely would help to identify
Thanks for your interest Dave.
I will try to send you pictures.
The canoe had a few broken ribs and it had been fiberglassed. I peeled off the fiberglass and a friend, who also built canoes, fixed the ribs and recanvassed it. I worked wood filler into the canvas and then painted it.
Anyway, I plan to sell it but hesitate to list it until I can establish its age and get a rough idea of its value.
Will be in touch.
Attention Dave Lanthier- could you email @ email@example.com and I could attempt to attach pictures I took of our canoe that we are attempting to date. Could not figure out how to attach through this site.
