Mystery Spars

20 Jul 17:

Scored some spars, looks like they went to a 10-12 foot sailing dinghy or maybe a canoe. Square drive fasteners point to possible Canadian origin.

All bronze fittings: two blocks on the boom, a pintle on the boom and a gudgeon on the mast.
Mast is 9' 6" tall, about 2" diameter. Gudgeon.
Yard is 8’ 10"" long, about 1 1/4" diameter. Leathered jaws. Strange line with ring.
Mast and yard measure approx 12' 6" from boom fitting.
Boom is 8' 8" long, about 1 1/4" diameter. Pintle. 2 blocks.

Is it a gunter rig or gaff rig? Any ideas as to what boat it went to?
