The information on this page is from the Merwin, Hulbert &Co. catalogue. The year of the catalogue is unknown however given references to 1888 in the write-ups for the Wood and the Tyro, I guess the year to be 1889. Many thanks to Phil DeCausemaker for sending me the Merwin, Hulbert &Co. cataloque.

(Designed by Mr. D. H. Crane)

"As to the merits of this design for racing, the well-posted reader will remember that it was in this canoe that Mr. Ben Wood lost the race for the Gardiner Cup in the W.C.A. meet of '88, by capsizing when leading Mr. Warder half a mile and with the same distance of the finish."
