18 ft Old Town

Wood canvas canoe builder
Hi Benson et al
I have a woman coming to repair her canoe at a course and it would be nice to know a bit more about it.
#112756 Old Town

we don't see too many Old Town's up north of the border - not quite sure that I can fit an 18 ft in my paintroom.
Thanks so much for your work.

Hi Pam,

Your clients canoe was shipped on June 27, 1934 to New Hampshire as a 16' HW in CS grade! You might want to double check the SN if you know this is an 18'er. The build record is attached for your reference. Let us know what you find and we'll get the right info out.

All the best,

Ric Altfather

Thanks Ric
Maybe they can't measure?! IT's an ebay thing so I will check with them again. Soooo much better if is a 16.
Hi Ric
I checked the serial # again and this has to be the boat. AT least the colour matches!
Thanks for all your help.
