Finished my latest project a 1939 18ft Thompson Indian (date was written on planking under the canvas). I would like to find a deck nameplate for it if possible. I bought it from a couple in Boise, Id. who used it extensively until it was to heavy to manage. They had inherited it from their Uncle who bought it new in Wisconsin and used it for trapping and hunting. It was in pretty good shape for it's age. There was a little rot in the stem ends, replaced seven ribs, a little planking and new thwarts. I added a carrying thwart as I often canoe with just my dog who is not much help carrying the boat.
