This has been stored in the original canvas bags in the basement of a home for over 50 years. When I opened the one bag there were typed assembly instructions and a rubber stamped of the home address of the previous owner, which didn't have a zip code! Zip codes were started in 1963!

Asking $800 which includes the skin.i have photos but they're too big to post here and in the process of adding them. Thx.

Very cool. Do you know how much it weighs? Have you paddled it?

I'm not sure about it's weight and I have not paddled it... the skin is a bit too shrunken to fit the frame.

I have heard of that problem before, but not encountered it. I have read suggestions to stretch it, maybe let it warm in the sun? Someone here will know.
Further searches indicate that your boat is a double, a two person boat. I am seeking a single that is ready to use.

try soaking the skin in a bathtub for a day then assemble wet
