Hi gang. I was wondering if anybody can identify this boat. I can't find any markings and it has some homestyle features like the rudder mount...but I thought that maybe somebody might recognize it and that would point me in the right direction. It is about 13-14 feet by 4-5 feet. Any info would be appreciated, thanks

What an interesting canoe....

Never seen anything like it on this side of the Atlantic, although it is similar in concept and general design to the wooden Stich'n'glue Carrick designed by Selway Fisher: http://www.selway-fisher.com/Opcan16.htm#CARRICK Also reminds me of the Aquamuse canoe: https://youtu.be/8cJ7B46kES8

I am not sure if anyone here on the IC forum will have much of an idea on what this is.....although you never know.....its not quite the kind of thing we play with.

I would suggest asking two other groups who might have a better idea. They are both based in the UK, but have members across the world.

Open Canoe Sailing Group: http://www.ocsg.org.uk/ and on FB at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/152444938788/

Classic & Vintage Racing Dinghy Association: http://www.cvrda.org/ and on FB at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/cvrda/

I hope you find out what it is. It is a moulded boat, so the chances are that a few of them were made.

Good luck
