Wooden Canoes are in the Blood
I was told this was a Morris. The stem profile is not right though the heart deck is similar. The stem inside is the same as a Morris but the seat is not a Morris, dowels instead of tenons. The closed gunwale is rabbited underside full length not cut out in semi circles like a Morris. The back was chopped off in the 50's and a motor mount transom set in. Thwarts seem home made. It would have been 17 foot originally. 34'5 inches at the widest. Modest tumble home. Not too bad a shape and for $50, why not? But, what is it?
