Curious about Wooden Canoes
Hi. Can I get the build record for a 16ft Otca AA? Has floor rack (now missing) and keel. #124619. Thanks Bill
 
Yes You Can

Hi Bill... we probably have the right record, cuz it fits your information...

Old Town 124619 is a 16 foot AA grade Otca canoe finished between March and June of 1938. It has open mahogany gunwales and mahogany decks/thwarts/seat frames. It was fitted with a keel but there's no mention of a floor rack. Painted a classic dark green, the canoe was shipped to Camp Greenkill in Huguenot, New York on (blurry smudge but maybe June) 27, 1838.

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 http://www.wcha.org/ot_records/ 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 http://www.wcha.org/wcha/ to learn more about the WCHA and http://www.wcha.org/join.php 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.
