I’m new here and I’m looking for advise. I have had this canoe for over 20 years and now I want to sell it but I keep getting ask who made it? The only ID is the plate that is pictured. I called Grumman but they didn’t think it was their canoe. Can anyone solve my puzzle?
The only other name that comes to mind is Alumacraft - their lineup has changed over the years, but the way the seats are constructed for example does make it look like that’s a good guess as to the maker.
Might be an Aerocraft. I believe they made aluminum canoes sold by Sears back in those days. Take a look at the photos in this old post and see what you think:
Some other makers of aluminum canoes of that era include Michicraft and Osagian.

In case you wanted confirmation, it’s definitely not a Grumman, and it doesn’t look like an Alumacraft to me either.
Yes I think Aerocraft is the winner by the looks of things
I hope you get this but i believe i have the same canoe. The logo on the side says DUO with a propeller as part of the logo. If you have any more info besides that I’d love to know. Mine sat in my grandparents yard for 15+ years and collected water and debree but i cleaned her up and she still floats great.
17ft AeroCraft Apache from the pictures I have looked at.
These are the only photos i have at the moment but i believe they are identical, minus the modifications i did.
