Curious about Wooden Canoes
Request info on 155236 16 please. Not sure if it's Old Town, but the ser numbers on on the stem and there are a couple diamond heads left...
Many thanks!
 
The Old Town canoe with serial number 155236 is a 16 foot long, CS grade, yankee model with open spruce gunwales and a keel. It was built between December, 1950 and May, 1951. The original exterior paint color was bright red enamel. It shipped on May 18th, 1951 to Holyoke, Massachusetts. 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 renew your membership 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.
