i have a 15' fiberglass canoe serial number ZNFA1976379
the "1976" is a different font, so obviously would be the year, i am interested in the make, but more the model , as i want to compare it to a prospector, which i plan to purchase new this year. it is wide, flat bottom, center keel and 2 smaller keels probably to stop tin canning, wood and rope seats, sluminum trim and plastic covers on the tips with sort of molded handles that dig into your hands. had aluminum yoke, but i upgraded to carved wood. any help or web suggestions appreciated.

The USCG has a Manufacturers ID data Base that will help. The year is usually the last two numerals, but early makers did whatever they wanted before the gov became didactic.

Try http://www.USCGboating.org, look for MIC, Manufacturers Identification Code Database Under the safety heading.

Tour hull is a Sportspal made in Callandar Ontario; not much in common with any builder's Prospector.
