I’m looking at purchasing a lotus canoe that needs some work on the gunwales. The canoe is pretty far away so I’d like to get as much information as possible before heading to see it. I’ve asked the seller for specific dimensions to try and narrow down the model but they keep saying its approximately 14’ feet. From my research I think its either a Caper, Egret, or Dandy. This is the only picture seller has and its not a great one, but I was wondering if anyone is able to identify the model from it?
If not, did lotus canoes come with an identification plate? or is my best plan of action to bug the seller for specific dimensions to try and identify it?
Also, if anyone knows the original wood or best wood to use for the gunwale repairs would help greatly.
