Help with identification

Hello All,
I recently acquired a boat that belonged to my wife’s grandfather. The only identification that it has is the “Ranger” “Kent WA” sticker on the side. My father-in-law knows that it was purchased in 1965 but, that is the only information that I have.
can anyone help me with identifying this canoe? seats and knee braces are original Mahogany.
any help is greatly appreciated.

Anything embossed or printed on the starboard stern?

Cannot find any markings anywhere other than the sticker.

Thank you. I was really impressed with how well it cleaned up. It has been stored in a barn for many years

I like it. Update on your impressions on the water.

“The Ranger Fiberglass Boat Company opened its doors in Kent, Washington in 1958.”
see this web page:

Could be a connection? Maybe a long-time employee there who would know.

will do!

That is very interesting. I am going to call them up and see if there is anyone there that may know.
Thanks for the link!

this is absolutely the company! my boat was built as a fiberglass reproduction of a Willit’s canoe. this history is fascinating.
Thank you so much for pointing me in this direction!

My pleasure, AJH. You have a nearly 60 year old treasure. Enjoy!
