    In my early days I traveled some Northern Saskatchewan rivers in one of these. A great old craft!

    IIRC, we had a 25 hp OB on it.

    Nice old find Kurt. The 22 footer is a very standard size, and has been for a century now. I have the most remarkable old black and white pictures of Cree Indians pushing freight in evinrude powered chest nuts.

    Back in the 90's some guys in Canada would fiberglass the bottoms flat on 22 ft Chestnuts, adding little jet motors.
