Kennebec ID

The Kennebec canoe with serial number 19548 is shown on page 104 of volume number three in the Kennebec ledgers. This was assigned to a 15 foot long Kennebec Model, type a. It was planked by Cameron on October 29th, 1927. The canvas covering and first filler coat were applied by Roy on the same day. The second filler coat was applied by Thibodeau on November 12th, 1927. The rails were applied by Maucell on November 26th, 1927. The original color was green and it shipped to location 28-670 on June 18th, 1928. This location is probably an order number but we don't currently have enough information to identify it. 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.
