Welcome aboard,

Thompson Boat brochures are available for purchase on a CD-ROM from Dan Miller at www.dragonflycanoe.com and www.wcha.org. This is your best bet for finding photos and specs for the boats during various years.

First you should verify the make, model and year of the boat via the hull ID, serial number, measurments, and details.

Make sure you check very closely all the structural componetns of the boat before doing any refinishing. Check for rot and splits etc... in keelson, keel, stem, stringers, ribs, planking transom, etc...
