Identify Make of My Canoe

I recently bought a 12’ aluminum canoe with no manufacturer’s info except for a serial #. Is there some way that this number can help me identify the maker and vintage? The # is SMK18737M78K. The # is located on the right side of the rear gunwale. I’m sure some canoe garu out there has an answer.

Info - Maybe
My best guess . .

Smoker Lumber Company designation

I would think it is a '78 model based on the serial number.
