Did they make them for personal use or for sale? Did any also work at Land & Forests canoe-building shop?

Not sure Brian....spoke with john Kilbridge about at FOT AGM....though I suppose that one of Guppy family built for sale, even if limited sales....example I saw, that John thought might be built by one of Guppy family, was very well built....maybe even over built....nice lines....decks seemed 'scalloped' nicely....solid ribs and planking obviously put together with great care....but I don't know much beyond that....or history of canoe....or which Guppy built....I'm interested in finding out more....
