I bought an old sawyer canoe yesterday and am trying to identify the year and model. Its around 52 lbs and 15’ 6" long. the serial # is 10696.
I have a piece of the gunwale off a Sawyer. The length of yours matches. The gunwale is aluminum and t he serial# is stamped on the inboard side. Starts out “SAW …” then nine digits. The last two give the date of manufacture.
If it’s a solo canoe, the length matches closely with a Summersong,
