wood / canvas canoe (1950's, made in Wisconsin)

We'd owned a 1922 Old Town canoe, which I'd found on Craigslist a while back. It had been stored underneath a front porch in Des Plaines, IL. While it was better designed and definitely had more character than this one, it needed quite a bit of work. I sold it and actually made a nice profit.

 

A couple months went by and I spotted this one for sale on the side of the road, and grabbed it. Only a few hundred dollars, and the best part is that it needs nothing.

 

Take THAT, soul-less $1000 plastic boat from Sportmart!
