We are used to seeing canoes floating on scenic waterways. We found this nice wooden specimen in an old run-down barn miles from the nearest lake or navigable stream. It certainly needs some maintenance, but it looked in pretty good condition.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

This canoe seems in very good condition, its wood must be particularly adapted to the living conditions on and off the water

@Devi: I will provide the Deerstalker and magnifying glass if you want to come over and solve it.

It's a mystery, in good contrition in an abandoned barn.

Maybe the owner didn't survive the canoeing and that's why the canoe left.

It certainly looks like it’s worth restoring. I wondered about the history of it.

A beautiful canoe, indeed! I love seeing the repeating structural members inside. Nice wood grain patterns in the wall as well.
