On CL there is an Adirondack Canoe that I might want to pick up as a fixer upper but I can't seem to find much info on them. Reminds me of the old Stowe Canoes with ribs and a nice line to it. No mention of width, length, or model. Anyone have the skinny on this boat?

A Stowe Mansfield - this is not one of those. The Mansfield had recurved ends. Other than that it looks about the same.

If you do find something that would be great. I'm still mulling it over.
Looks like a challenging project, Doug.|

I had a Navarro - which is similar in appearance, if not construction. FWIW, one of the reasons I have since avoided the Navarro and Merrimack brands is that false-rib construction. They are gorgeous - too pretty for use by someone like me. But they are also more maintenance-intensive (the Navarro, at least) than, say, a Mad River composite.
