history

The Kennebec canoe with serial number 14224 is shown on page 276 of volume number two in the Kennebec ledgers. This was assigned to an 18.5 foot long Kennebec Guide's Model. It was planked by Mansell on May 29th, 1920. The canvas covering and first filler coat were applied by Roy on the same day. The rails were applied by Toulouse(?) on June 12th, 1920. The original color and shipping location are blank. The scans of this build record can be found by following the links at the attached thumbnail images below. These original Kennebec records are reproduced through the courtesy of the Maine State Museum.

The microfilms and scans of these records were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA). I hope that you will join or contribute 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.

More information about this and other Kennebec models can be found in the Kennebec catalogs contained on the Historic Wood Canoe and Boat Company Catalog Collection CDs available from http://www.wcha.org/catalog/ and http://www.dragonflycanoe.com/cdrom.htm on the web.

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