123255-13 old town 50#er

The Old Town canoe with serial number 123255 is a 13 foot long fifty pound model with a keel. It was built between October, 1937 and May, 1938. The original exterior paint color was bright red. It shipped on June 13th, 1940 to Waterbury, Conn. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the attached thumbnail image below.

This scan was created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others as you probably know well. 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 renew your membership to the WCHA so that services like this can continue.

It is also possible that you could have another number or manufacturer if this description doesn't match your canoe. This was last researched on July 5th, 2004. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.
