New Guy searching for information on Trawler

Hey everyone.....Newbie here looking for information on an old Trawler I bought several years ago. The information that I do have makes this a Canadian built Trawler, by a company called LePage?? It looks as though they took a page out of the Hatteras Yachts to build this after. The paperwork I have states that this was an 1976 yr build and it has 2 ford lehman diesel motors and a diesel generator. It also has some kind of german heat exchanger?? For heat throughout the boat? I have never seen any kind of diesel heater like this, and I cannot find any information on who really built this boat and if there are any more like it still around? All i came up with is that LePage built military helicopters?? I would really love to know more of the history of this boat. One more defining characteristic of this trawler is that it is keeled from front to rear.. I would appreciate any information that anyone has to help me solve this mystery.. Thanks everyone!!

Welcome to TF

Hmmm... tough one. I think more information is required. What size is it. If it is really small it could be No. 8 on this list, but I don't think they made a heated version.

I searched the net in French and came up with some ads for these boats in quebec. There are not many. If you could post a pic that would be awesome.

I would try calling one of the three chandleries in Montreal and find the "know all guru" and ask. If not Montréal I would call a few locations in Ottawa next. If you try calling Québec city they may not speak English.
