    Such an offer is primarily of interest to those who find themselves up the creek without a paddle.

    Bump!
    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    I saw that. I don't think I ever subscribed but tried to sign in anyway just for giggles. It turns out I have an account for some reason so I suppose I automatically qualify?

    Apparent, Scot, you’ve never seen any of the “wooden” “boats” I build and use.

    My guess is that the Brunswick Corporation may claim that title with an 1845 start date as described at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brunswick_Corporation although they don't appear to have entered the marine business until 1961. The information at https://www.perko.com/perko_story/ indicates that Perko started in the early 1900s. See https://www.wcha.org/forums/index.php?threads/16294/ for more details about the various founding dates of the organizations the preceded Shaw & Tenney, along with a variety of other old canoe and boat builders. Questions like this seem simple but quickly get complicated,
