Could you provide more photos of this vessel (I would like a picture a view from the stern....) (is that a canoe stern?)

you say the vessel was built in Canada.... do you know the name of the vessel when it was registered in Canada, or do you have other evidence of the vessel being built in Canada? (in case a buyer would want to register it again in Canada)
