This White Canoe Company Runabout was built in Old Town, Maine, in 1963 and was totally restored in 2011 by a professional boat builder. Her original restored woodwork is a testimony to her quality of workmanship. She is stored on her trailer to be efficiently purchased for the boater who enjoys a winter project of installing the windows in the refinished windshield, which will finish up the recent woodwork. This Maine-built boat offers distinguishing classic lines, lovely mahogany woodwork, and comfortable cruising.
Traditional construction as follows: Stern, keel, stringers and frame are white ash. The planking is 5-ply Royal Marine Duraply. Decks are 5-ply mahogany. Transom is 15-ply fir with mahogany facing. Gunwhales, seats and bright work are all mahogany. Her hardware is original.
Currently, the deck, windshield, and rails of mahogany are sanded. A buyer will need to varnish and reinstall the windows in the windshield and the guard rails.
On a historical note, E. M. White moved his business to Old Town, Maine in 1896, and built canoes into the 1940s. After World War Two, Walter King, one of White’s employees, and his brother-in-law Pat Farnsworth purchased the company, changed the name to White Canoe Company, and shortly afterward began to build fiberglass canoes. Old Town Canoe Company acquired the White Canoe Company in 1984.
