you can put links in your pnet posts. Then we can click a link to see the picture. You don't have to be a pnetter to do that.

I would be curious to know the beam of the canoe, that is, the width across the center thwart. I would imagine that the weight of the canoe is considerable, maybe 80 pounds, and that it is designed more for fishing and lilydipping than for the kind of speed cruising done in a Sawyer Cruiser.

I say that so you know that your Sawyer may have a name, but isn't a "pedigree" example in the Sawyer line. Enjoy it for what it is, but don't sink much money into restoration. Instead, get something lighter and faster.
