Torpedo canoe for sale with odd misidentification

Enthusiastic about Wooden Canoes
FYI There is a torpedo style canoe for sale in the Ottawa area with yellow canvas, possibly a Peterborough Dart or a Dean or another canoe that I have no idea about. Oddly, the vendor feels that it is birchbark.



There is no price given, if the vendor is convinced that it is birchbark, it might be priced really high.

Edit: looking at it again it looks like a board and Batten canoe. I thought that it was canvas on it, but maybe it is fiberglass. I stuck a picture in below
