Bear Mountain Boats restores a Vintage 14 "Shottie"

I saw online that Bear Mountain Boats, known for strip plank canoes, had a restored pre-war International 14 at a outdoor boat show somewhere in Ontario last year. A very interesting transom which looks quite unlike the Bourke or Mallette 14's I've seen from that era. I sent an email to Bear Mountain last year but didn't get a reply. It's worth another try. A real beauty as can be seen by the photos.
