OT serial # 117386 was issued to a 16' foot AA grade HW model canoe, with western cedar planking, open mahogany gunwales, mahogany decks, thwarts and seats, keel, floor rack and originally painted dark green. It was shipped to Culver, IN on 14 Aug. 1937.

The scan of this record is attached below-- click on it to get a larger image. This scan and several hundred thousand others were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others. A description of the project to preserve these records is available at if you want more details. I hope that you and anyone else reading this will join or renew membership in the WCHA so that services like this can continue. See to learn more about the WCHA and to renew.

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.

Thank you Roger

This seems correct. Glad to see it is an HW.

I am a member of WCHA #1186. Should I make a donation?
