  I think it's a Sawyer 17
  Posted by: pknoerr on Oct-23-13 11:59 AM (EST)

I suspect that the canoe is a Sawyer 17, based mainly on the model listed on the canoe, plus I'm sure that Sawyer sold a canoe called a Sawyer 17, as well as a 16. So, I suspect it's neither an X-17 or a Cruiser. Sawyer built all sorts of canoes for essentially anyone who would pay them to build canoes that would pay them. Plus they built any number of canoes for family/recreational use that weren't marketed more toward canoe enthusiasts like the Cruiser, the 190, 222, and X-17. These recreational boats were often made in mutiple fiberglass layups, and had more of a traditional recurved bow and stern rather than the more modern.

Here in Michigan we see alot of fiberglass canoes in the used market that were made in Oscoda by Saywer, including the Coca-cola canoe.
