The Old Town canoe with serial number 12874 is a 16 foot long, AA grade, Charles River model with red Western cedar planking, open mahogany gunwales, long mahogany decks, mahogany trim, half ribs, and a keel. It was built between November, 1909 and April, 1910. The original exterior paint color was slate. It shipped on April 23rd, 1910 to Rochester, New York. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link behind the attached thumbnail image below.

This scan is one of several hundred thousand that were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others. Additional information about 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. 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. How long are the decks?
