Peterborough Canoe Co. English Model Sailing Canoe

Rob von Bitter

Enthusiastic about Wooden Canoes
I sold an interesting Peterborough sailing canoe recently and thought I'd share some pics of it. The canoe has the most amazing curved mast which I haven't seen before. I'll try to get better photos and upload them in the future.

I've seen curved masts like that before but can't easily locate any period pictures. You also appear to have a 'wish bone' or 'horse collar' boom as shown and described in the attached images. These are back in style now for wind surfers.
