Hello WCHA. I just joined so I could get the build data on my old Kennebec, #12346. I'd appreciate a reply from whoever maintains the database for WCHA.

Thanks very much. It's a great service that WCHA provides.
 
I'm sorry for the long delay in answering this request but it has been a busy summer. The Kennebec canoe with serial number 12346 as shown on pages 24 and 25 of volume one in the Kennebec ledgers. This was assigned to an 18 foot long Kennebec model B. It was planked by Lant. on April 30th, 1917. The canvas covering and first filler coat were applied by Roy on the same day. It was railed by G. Swain on May 4th, 1918. The original color was red and it was painted on May 11th, 1918. It shipped to SR+Co. (Sears Roebuck and Company?) on May 21th, 1918.

The scans of these build records 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 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 renew.

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.

Benson
