My family had a 2003 Bell Merlin II Solo Canoe stolen off our property near Grand Marais sometime between mid-March and mid-May. It has the black kevlar exterior with wood gunwales. If anyone has seen a matching canoe posted for sale in the last 8 weeks or so, please let me know. It is the canoe on the right in the photo. Thanks!

Did u have it licensed? Maybe alerting the dmv and the cops with the hull ID and sticker number would help.
Either someone really likes it or they will try to sell on line or at outdoor shows with canoe sales.

Yes, we did alert the local sheriff and the DNR, so if anyone tries to register it, we should be notified. I have been keeping an eye on Craigslist/Facebook Marketplace, but thought that if it had been sold before we realized, maybe someone here would remember. Thanks for the ideas!

What year sticker did you have on it at time of theft? Where is the sticker located on your canoe?

The registration sticker was '20 I believe and would be located on the front of the hull next to the Bell logo.
