In 1974 I purchased a Vermont Tubbs canoe with a midship decal “Mad River Canoes” and a bow decal Tubbs Vermont. Serial # indicates it was built in July 1973. I’m aware that Jim Henry licensed Tubbs to use his design. The shape and dimensions are the same as MR Malecite except the depth is an inch or so less. It’s FG with woven snowshoe type seats. I paddled it for 50+ years, added a seat for solo paddling and replaced the square rails. It tracks beautifully paddling solo and with a bit of lean turns nicely. I have paddled and tripped with it from the Adirondacks to Maine.
I 'm wondering if there are collectors for such canoes?
