    Hi Guys-I just got a 13' Old Town in not bad shape except that it has been fiberglasssed. The # appears to be 110377-13. Keel,single thwart,2 seats. A small oval tag on the bow deck says made for Abercrombie & Fitch by Old Town Canoe Co. I'm guessing 50# model from the mid thirties. Any thoughts?

    Ed,

    This canoe was shipped on 3/31/1932 to Abercrombe & Fitch in New York as a 13' 50# model in CS (common sense) grade. It was constructed with western red cedar for planking, spruce gunwales and oak seats, thwarts and seats. It was also ordered with a keel and the original color was dark green. Build record attached.

    All the best,

    Ric Altfather
