Build Record for 1928 Old Towne Sea Model


New Member
Requesting the build records for a 1928 Old Towne 16 Foot Sea Model canvas cover cedar boat. Serial Number 98377. What a great service you are providing. It makes this wonderful canoe even more interesting.
Looks like you got it pretty close. 98377 was assigned to a 16' Sea model in AA condition with 60" decks, keel, bilge keel and floor racks. Its original colot was light red and it was shipped to Portland ME in May of 1928. A copy of the build record is attached. Benson Gray did a search on this boat in May, 2002.

Scans of approximately 210,000 records 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 if you want more details. Please join WCHA or make a tax deductable contribution so that services like this can continue. See to learn more about the WCHA, to watch a 10 minute video about WCHA and our programs and to join. If you are already a WCHA member, THANK YOU!

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.
