The canoe is an aluminum one
The canoe was made by Richland Manufacturing Company out of Richland, Missouri. They had a line of boats called Richline Most of their boats were made around the 60's. The model number on the canoe is 17C. The serial number on the boat: RCHR1166M73D.
I am particularly interested in the weight

The inaccuracy of any scale you use will pale into insignificance when compared to published weights from the 60s if any can be found.

how accurate you need to be. If you are looking for an estimate give us the length, beam and depth and we can estimate pretty darn closely.
Such a guess might not be all that close|

Making an estimate based on dimensions might be reasonably close or it might not be, depending on the gauge of the sheet metal and what the framing (ribs, keel, gunwales) is like. For example, look at how much difference in weight there is between a shoe-keeled Grumman and a standard Grumman. There was an even greater weight difference between the old lightweight Grumman (no longer available) and either of the first two models, yet all three were constructed on the same mold and had identical dimensions. Also, compare the weight of any 17-foot Grumman to that of a 17-foot Alumacraft, two boats which are very nearly the same in dimensions but quite different in weight.

I was trying to reach someone that might have the boat and get an accurate figure or close to it

This being p.net, I find it hilarious that you asked an intelligent question and expected someone to actually answer it.
Right on !|

I was going to use a sarcastic remark to a few of the posts above, but figured I would refrain.

... include mine, since there were only three posts prior to the one in question. My post was not directed at you, Jack. It was directed at the guy who found weighing a canoe using a bathroom scale to be problematic.
Thank you |

for refraining. Shows good judgment.
Thanks everyone for trying|

I would take an accurate bathroom scale outside and weigh yourself. Then step off, shoulder the boat as if to portage it, and step back on the scale. The weight you gained with the canoe should be pretty close to the canoe weight.
Please go up and read my reply ..|
