From your pics and my leaky memory I’d say it’ not a Wolverine. At least not a model sold by Fresh air Experience in Winnipeg back in the 70’s
Wolverines, as I mentioned in a previous post (linked above) came in FG or Epoxy resin. They were a layup canoe vs chopper and were quite light. They also had flotation tanks. The bottoms and ribs were quite flexible. By flexible one could read oil-canning, but the ribs did flex over rocks etc. They were very flat on the bottom and had outstanding initial stability. They were the perfect cottage canoe.
I like the lines of your canoe and I agree it should paddle similar to a Prospector.
Scott does come to mind as the manufacturer as well.

Hmmm, thanks Hugh. Mine did used to have flotation tanks, but light and flexible do not apply!

Cheers, Pat.
