Build Record Request

Hi Lew,

Old Town 198831 is, as you suspected, an 18 foot Guide model canoe... it was built between January and March of 1974... came with a keel and was painted dark green, then shipped to Bertrand's Sports Shop in Green Bay, Wisconsin on March 7, 1974. An inquiry was made in 1978 from a party in Manitowoc, WI.

Scans of front and back of this record are below. I know you're a WCHA member, but others here may not be aware that 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.

We appreciate greatly any tax deductible 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-- those of you reading this who aren't members yet!
