This canoe is very similar to a 1910s-1920s Old Town but was built by the B. N. Morris Canoe Company in Veazie, Maine in 1914. Morris produced wood and canvas canoes from 1891 until fire destroyed the factory late in 1919. The 17-foot Heavy Water canoe was apparently shipped to Maryland in 1915. It later found its way to the hands of a Warren Proctor, who owned a camp in northern Pittsburg, New Hampshire where it spent most of its life being paddled on the first Connecticut River lake. Upon his death, she was acquired by the current owner. It has been stored inside since. The factory green was repainted with a blue tone which is now cracked and in need of a refresh. The hull is in great shape, no cracked rips or internal damage. The keel is in good shape. The brass bow-strip has fallen off but is still with the boat. Original seats are intact. The hull serial number is 11755.
