This White Canoe Company Runabout was built in Old Town, Maine, in 1963 and was totally restored in 2011 by a professional boat builder. Her original restored woodwork is a testimony to her quality of workmanship. She is ready on her one-axle trailer to be launched for the boater who enjoys the distinguishing classic lines this boat has to offer.
