Who is the manufacture of my pre-1972 aluminum canoe?



Hi
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?
Thanks
Lon

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
