Build Record for OT

The Old Town canoe with serial number 106021 is a 17 foot long, AA (or top) grade, Otca model with red Western cedar planking, open mahogany gunwales, thwarts, a keel, and a floor rack. It was built between April and October, 1930. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It was shipped on May 23rd, 1931 to New York City. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the attached thumbnail image below.

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 http://www.wcha.org/ot_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.php to join.

It is also possible that they could have another number or manufacturer if this description don't match your canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.
