Kennebec 16 101775

The Kennebec canoe with number 101775 is a 16 foot long "Kineo Special" model shown on page 254 of volume four in the Kennebec ledgers. It was planked by Morgan(?) on December 31st, 1927. The canvas covering was applied by L. Thibodeau on January 21st, 1928. The first filler coat was applied by Saucier on the same day. The second filler coat was applied by Saucier on February 18th, 1928. It was railed by King on June 23rd, 1928. The original color was green. It was shipped on June, 25th 1928 to location "28-595". This location is probably an order number but we don't currently have enough information to identify it.

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.

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.
