ADDED WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 1:
We took a canoe down from an 18 foot ceiling where it had been hanging for years. So today is the first time it has been listed. We found that it is an AuSable Canoe Co. Canoe, built in Oscoda. It is 8' and made of wood and canvas. We know it was used by Robert Jones in the 1959 AuSable Marathon where he came in 7th. We are working on more information about its value. It will be in the auction.
We also found another wood and fiberglass boat which we thought was an Old Town. I'm not so sure as of this writing. The serial number is 464898 and that does not match anything from that company. If you know canoes, please peruse the pictures and see what you think. The family said this canoe is the same vintage as the AuSable and we would believe that. This canoe will also be in the auction along with an aluminium canoe, 2 Jon boats and 2 motors.
