Ot #107758 -18


Here is the verbal info but having problems changing from TIF format to GIF format to enclose the build record. Maybe Benson or Dan can help till I figure this out.

OT # 107758 is an 18' Model Otca in CS grade with open spruce gunwales and oak decks. The original color was Dark Green, a keel was added and shipped to New York on May 16, 1934.


The Old Town canoe with serial number 107758 is an 18 foot long, CS grade, Otca model with open spruce gunwales, oak decks, oak trim, and a keel. It was built between October, 1930 and February, 1934. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on May 16th, 1935 to Port Jervis, New York. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the thumbnail image attached below.

These scans were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others as you probably know well by now. A description of the project to preserve these records is available at http://www.wcha.org/catalogs/old-town/records/ if you want more details. I hope that you will join or contribute to the WCHA so that services like this can continue. See http://www.wcha.org/wcha/ to learn more about the WCHA and http://www.wcha.org/join.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. Good luck with your repairs.
