    Welcome, the Old Town canoe with serial number 137080 is an 18 foot long Guide model with open spruce gunwales, ash decks, ash thwarts, ash seats, and no keel. It was built between Febuary and September, 1943. The original exterior paint color was maroon. It shipped on September 29th, 1943 to Vanceboro, Maine. A scan showing this build record can be found below.

    This scan and several hundred thousand others were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others. A description of the project to preserve these records is available at http://www.wcha.org/ot_records/ if you want more details. I hope that you will donate, join or renew your membership to the WCHA so that services like this can continue. See http://www.wcha.org/about-the-wcha/ to learn more about the WCHA and http://store.wcha.org/WCHA-New-Membership.html to join.

    It is also possible that you could have another number or manufacturer if this description doesn't match your canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions,

    Benson
