Old Town 42 inch decks

Curious about Wooden Canoes
I have a 1936 Hw sponson sailing canoe with 42 inch decks. Did old town make any canoes with longer decks? I see that the graph shows 4% of canoes were made with long decks, any idea on how many of the long deck canoes had 42 inch decks?
 
My guess is not many but it would take a detailed search of several hundred thousand records to get a more exact number. I did see another Old Town with very long decks like yours at the WCHA Assembly many years ago. The catalogs from the early 1920s offered decks up to 60 inches long as shown below. Can you provide a serial number and some pictures?
