canoe serial number search

The Old Town canoe with serial number 141105 is a 16 foot long, AA (or top) grade, HW (Heavy Water) model with open ash gunwales, a keel, a floor rack, and sponsons. It was built between November, 1944 and February, 1945. The original exterior paint was dark green with a G. S. (Guide's Special) green bottom. It shipped on July 3rd, 1945 to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. 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 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 to learn more about the WCHA and to join.

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.
