What's the OAL?
That's usually called a wine glass stern.
18 feet and 40 inches wide
It has a vessel registration number and fairly recent decal. Perhaps DMV has the manufacturer info on it.
Yup. DMV stated it as homebuilt. I don't think it is though. The craftsmanship is quite well done. Thanks for the suggestion!
If I can't figure it out it is fine. I am just curious.
Good luck! There are plenty of knowledgeable canoe folks on the forum, of which I am not one. If you have some more pictures it may help, as well as a description. I assume it is fiberglass throughout? Details of the yoke, seats, and even the gunwales will probably help trigger the right memory for someone. It may also be a finely crafted home-made boat. Good luck with the CSI work!
If you can't find an answer log unto BWCA.COM, message board, then submit your question on the Listening point thread. A will almost guarantee they will be able to identify your canoe. The whole website is for canoes enthusiasts. I've watched them identify many canoes.
May the rivers be crooked and winding, and the portages lonesome, leading to the most "Amazing View".
That's a nice boat! The loa and beam are wrong for a stock David Hazen Micmac but the shape is
very similar to his Micmac wineglass freighter plans.
Micmac's have a lot of tumble home, or midship bulge, and are considered
to be a live a little longer in big water shape. I can't quite see if your sides fit this feature.
You think that might possibly be fiberglass over strip cedar? A good cedar strip glass covered hull
will be lighter than solid glass construction and will be around 5/16 thick in a boat that size. If that boat is light
for it's size I vote for cedar strip without excess resin. You know the weight?
I run a 20X4 Hazen on 1.2 HP to 5 HP motors. It will not plane like a Mitchraft but will deliver incredible mileage.
It was pretty beat up when I owned it. I patched it with splash zone and used it. Great canoe
Sure looks like it! what speeds were you getting with it on the 10 hp merc?
